Melissa Arca, M.D., allParenting author, and her mom and sister
^I love this picture of me, my mom and older sister. It's so true what they say about appreciating your mother 100 times more when you're a mother yourself. My children are about the same ages as my sister and me in that photo, so I can really relate to that beautiful woman with two (of her five!) girls. Still, one of my most treasured memories is when my mom walked me down the aisle at my wedding. My father was unable to and my mom... well, she has always been my rock. She epitomizes what true, unconditional love is. Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
