Mother’s Day amid COVID-19 pandemic: finding ways to celebrate at a distance

The COVID-19 pandemic means Mother’s Day is going to be different for a lot of families this year.

Social distancing restrictions are preventing many moms and their family members from celebrating the occasion face-to-face.
