When the world so often degrades mothers, it's always empowering to see those who stand up for motherhood. As Jeffrey R. Holland said, “Mothers, we acknowledge and esteem your faith in every footstep. Please know that it is worth it then, now, and forever.” 

Nicole Kidman wants to keep adoption "very much a part of our conversation," and her latest role, in the movie "Lion," is doing exactly that.

Kidman adopted two children with ex-husband Tom Cruise and has two biological children with husband Keith Urban. She told CNN that her desire to have a family stemmed from her own "maternal instincts," which have been a "driving force" in her life since she was a young girl.

"I think because I've experienced motherhood in so many different ways," she said. "I've experienced adoption, birthing a child and I've experienced surrogacy. I'm like, when it comes to it, I just wanna be a mama."
