My mom is simply the best. She had 4 of her own kids, she married a man with 2 kids, she took on custody of her grand daughter and then accepted responsibility of another baby for a friend to keep him from from going into foster care. My mom is 43, and is practically starting over. She truly cares for the kids in her life. She raised us by herself, we are 24,23, 21 and 17. Her stepkids are 14,and 11, but they got custody of one of them 2 years ago. She then got custody of her grand daughter and then a family friend asked her and her husband to take her baby who was 2 months at the time, so she could see him grow up, and keep him from the foster care system. She basically started over raising other people's kids and gave up her life to make theirs better. So, this took her from 4 kids to 8. Plus she has another grandbaby she watches all the time. Her great nephew even calls her grandma because she loves him like a grandchild. My mom as far as I can remember has always put us and now them first. She has always been there for the kids. She is constantly taking on more than she can handle to help others out. Her father just passed and while she was trying to grieve for him managed to plan and carry out a beautiful funeral for him without any help from her siblings. She has always been there for us, we all call her several times a day. We burn up her cell phone. She helps with anything we ask of her, even if she is tired and worn out. She stays up until 2 or 3 in the morning to finish laundry and clean while everyone else is sleeping. She shuttles us all around to games, practices, band stuff, you name it, she does it. I know most moms do it, but to do it once with us and now to do it with other people's kids, it is like motherhood part 2. My mom has raised us to do our best in life, and now she is trying to show the same to the other kids. She is often so stressed out, I feel bad and I help her out, but then she worries about me, if we or her needs shoes or clothes, we get them, if her or us needs to go to the doctor, we go. As long as I can remember, we have always came first. She is a very loving and caring mother and truly deserves " Mother of the Year Awards every year."
