On Mother’s Day millions of moms will receive gifts to make them smile. But according to First Lady Michelle Obama, the mothers of the three Ohio women who were rescued yesterday is the best present their mothers could have hoped to receive.

In an interview with Kelly Wallace of iVillage for NBC, following her “American Grown” book signing at a Washington book store Tuesday, Mrs. O expressed how her heart “swells up with relief” over the freeing of Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight, and Gina DeJesus.

“Just imagine first losing a child and not knowing whether they’re alive or dead or in harm’s way,” the first lady said, “And to be holding out hope for a decade and to finally have those prayers answered is just probably the best Mother’s Day gift… that these families will receive.”She continued, “These families are going to have to wrap their arms around these young women and make sure that they get all the help and support they need so that they will go on and lead healthy, normal lives.”
