I have been asking myself, ''What does it mean to be a mom?” throughout my life because I didn't get a chance to see or meet my own mother. I went around asking women the real meaning of being a mom. I asked unmarried mothers, the young mother, and experienced mothers.
Aline Murara, seen here with her firstborn Sarah, told me that for her "being a mom is love, mercy, happiness, and patience."
