Mothers are incredible. They can juggle multiple tasks, manage a household, fill the cupboards with good things, yet still find time to read their children a bedtime story, or be a shoulder for them to cry on. But when difficult times come, mothers are there to weather out the storms, often enduring sleepless nights in order to provide comfort and love to their child.

Below is a compilation of 50 powerful photos that mothers shared with The Mighty, detailing moments of tremendous challenge and courage. These images, with their own unique stories, are incredibly moving photos that express the power of a mother’s love.
