TUCSON - As people everywhere celebrate the women we call mothers, Tucsonans took extra time to appreciate life and where it came from.
Cecilia Albelais and her mother Lucy Rodriguez went out for brunch downtown with family and friends to celebrate Mother's Day. Cecilia said she has one message for her mother: "I adore her with all of my heart."
Across town on the 8th floor of UAMC, a new mother basks in what she calls the ultimate Mother's Day gift.
"I think it's probably one of the best Mother's Day presents a mother could ask for," said Jennifer Meyer. She spent the morning introducing the world to her second daughter Lyla Francis Saddiqi.
"It's incredibly special. Of every hat that I wear in life I think this is by far my favorite. It's incredibly rewarding and challenging and I never knew that I could love so fiercely until I became a mother," Meyer said.
