BX mom gets special Mother's Day gift

Just in time for Mother's Day, a Bronx woman received a special present this morning - a baby daughter.

After nine months, Melissa Flores welcomed her new child, Mayly, into the world. She says all the hard work and pain of labor paid off in the end.

"It was great, a great experience, and on Mother's Day, a blessing from God," Flores says.

The 7-pound, 5-ounce girl was delivered at Jacobi Medical Center just after 8 a.m.

Flores says now that she has a daughter, she can appreciate better all the sacrifices her own mother made to raise her.
