strong mothers

{Christina cradling her newborn son.  He can't take his eyes off her.}

A lot of mothers have inspired me.  This generation of moms in the world today are doing mighty things, balancing life seamlessly, and transforming a child through constant, ever so gentle love and affection.  Here are a few in my life, sharing a tender moment with their child.  I love that in every photo their arms are the means to express their love--enjoy.
