To preface, the story is about mom's celebrating the anniversary of when they became a mom (basically the birth day of their oldest child).
"The anniversary of becoming a mother is one of the few life-changing moments that is rarely heralded. And whether our child is born to us or adopted, motherhood is a choice that permanently alters the way we view ourselves and our universe. It is the moment when we make a commitment to truly care for another human being. This vow goes beyond words or ceremony: this vow is etched in our cells and knitted into our hearts."
