News.” I was one of those moms when I had my daughter, Carmella. There are so many things you can’t prepare for and your heart feels like it breaks over and over and over. We get so, so strong, but for a little while, we are very fragile. This is a song just for those mamas. I want them to feel seen and held, especially on Mother’s Day. “
