A Mother's Day Special | Mom for the Day: Guia Mae Valderrama


An amazing fact about motherhood:
In English she's mom; in Mandarin Chinese, mama. To Spanish kids, she's mama too, though with slightly different accents on the syllables. "Mom" is translated as mamma in Iceland, ma in punjabi, em in Hebrew and me in Vietnamese. Noticing a trend? No coincidence — one of the first word-like sounds babies typically vocalize is a "ma" sound, and almost every language across the globe has taken that baby talk as the basis for the word for mother.

Our MOM for the day is Guia Mae Valderrama. This photo was taken during her pregnancy as she gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Gavin last September 15, 2015. She is a registered nurse and had worked in Singapore for four years before migrating to the US in 2013. Guia and her husband, Emil, also a registered nurse, are currently living in Los Angeles, California. She took a break from the medical industry and chose to go full-time with motherhood. It is a wise choice and a good move for her so she can spend more time in nurturing her precious little one. She finds motherhood both rewarding and challenging and she is excited and ready to go through the process of parenthood in many more years to come.

Our message for the day:
Thank you for always sharing your smiles, your hugs, your words of encouragement and for all the countless times you've been there for us. We love you, Moms!
