It's mothers day and moms around the world are celebrating. Gabrielle Union, a first time mother to daughter Kaavia James, took to Instagram to share the moment she met her daughter, fresh out the womb, and rejoice in being a mother. She wrote:
I've cried so many times today for so many reasons, mainly because I'd gotten accustomed to heartbreak and disappointment. I think alot of us live in that space. I set up shop there. This moment reminded me that miracles do happen. You cant age out of joy. You are worthy. You are worthy. You are worthy. Sending so much love today to all the mamas, stepmamas, grandmas, aunties real and play, daddies, friends and anyone who has taken the time to nurture another living soul. I see you, I gotchu. And to those who have lost their mamas, grandmas, mother figures, sending extra love and light and hugs your way. 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗
