Lots of moms and daughters come into StoryCorps to talk. They share so much — silly stories, painful memories, beating the odds, sacrifice. These women, many of them still young girls and every one of them unique, come together to talk about all things — to let it be known time and time again that there is no denying the power of this most important relationship and the need for a mother’s love.
