“Watching this video reminded me of my own mother,” gold medalist swimmer Dana Vollmer told Olympic.org. “I had no idea how much physical and emotional strength is required as a mom until I encountered my first sleepless nights with a new baby.”
As the video says, “It takes someone strong to raise someone strong.”
