While yes this is an ad for Huggies, it is also a joyful true story which captures at least a part of the absolute wonder every woman feels for her baby.

30 year old Tatiana can’t see the scan of her baby or recognise any of his facial features.  She started losing her sight when she was 17.  Watch this kind-hearted radiologist surprise her by helping her to meet him for the very first time.

I also couldn’t resist including this gorgeous tribute from a New Zealand radio DJ to his wife and four children.  He manages to capture all the sacrifice, joy and laughter of having children, and has the courage to go out of his radio comedy ‘comfort zone’ to do so. As far from a commercial as you’ll get, and oh so heartwarmingly genuine from an average Kiwi guy.  Watch it here.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers who can very much identify with these moments of wonder, sacrifice and joy.
