How Do You Envision Motherhood? Our Multiracial Mother’s Day

How do your multiracial children celebrate Mother’s Day? Although I’ve had several, this was the first Mother’s Day celebration with my mom and mother-in-law. We lived 300 miles apart and just never came out for the holiday.

This weekend was the ultimate reminder
