Elizabeth Smart posted a picture of her family on Instagram for Mother's Day, sharing the first full family photo since having her second child, James, in April. 

"Happy Mother's Day! Grateful for Matthew giving me two beautiful children, grateful to my Mom for being the best mom I could ever ask for, grateful to all the strong women who have impacted my life so much!" Smart posted. 

Smart first shared a picture of her children together when she announced the birth of her second child with an adorable Easter picture. 

"These two make my Easter perfect!" she wrote on Instagram.

The topic of motherhood has significant meaning to Smart, who shared with PEOPLE in 2014 that "I would not be here if it weren't for my mom."

After her abduction in 2003, Smart says remembering the love of her mother helped her decide she would do "whatever it took to survive" as she spent nine harrowing months in captivity, according to pressdemocrat.com

And that kind of love is what Smart says she hopes to share as a mother herself. 

“My mom is a hero and has influenced my life more than any other person, and I’d like to have that same influence on my children,” she told PEOPLE
