Moms are tough ladies. We all know this. Going through nine months (or more) of pregnancy is hard enough, but that’s only the beginning of the journey as a mom. Some moms do some truly extraordinary things, sometimes before they even give birth. You’ll see several examples of that here today. You’ll see moms who waited much longer than others before actually becoming a mom or a mom that gave up everything to save her daughter and yet another mom that had eight kids at the same time. That was in addition to the six she already had. Moms can be truly amazing sometimes and you’ll see some good examples of that below.She gave birth to a daughter at the age of 19.
