Sotomayor Makes All Moms Proud

You Know You're a Mother When: Your Daughter...

Is a Supreme Court Justice nominee and thanks you for your sacrifices. Sonia Sotomayor told the Senate Judiciary Committee:

"I want to make one special note of thanks to my mom. I am here today because of her aspirations and sacrifices for both my brother, Juan, and me. Mom, I love that we are sharing this together."

Every mother questions her parenting skills and the choices she makes for herself and her children, but a mom knows she's done something right when her offspring becomes a productive and admirable member of society who recognizes the woman who raised her.
