First of all, thanks to everyone who participated and helped make this contest a success! We loved each and every touching story and shout out submitted to our 2019 Mother’s Day Giveaway. Enough can never be said about the wonderful hearts and acts of the mothers in this world and we thank each of you who put up a nomination. You helped us spread the love of motherhood. Here are this year’s two winners, but we encourage you to read the many other stories shared during this year’s contest here. We hope these 2 moms will like the gift.
Nominated by Candice Sheets
"I would nominate my own mother. Not because she’s my mom but because she has played the role of “mom” to dozens of my brother and my friends! Not only that but she’s a great mom to four babies too. She has always been there for me, even in my darkest, most shameful moments. She may have reprimanded me but she never failed to lift me from the flames. Over the years—she’s become somewhat of a friend and not only a parent. I don’t trust anyone the way I do my mother."
Nominated by Wendy Enger
"I am nominating my daughter Naomi, who has recently become a new mommy of her almost two-month-old daughter Nova.
Naomi is a relatively young mom at 19 as was I and I know from experience how difficult it is stepping up and letting go of some of your dreams for the well-being and happiness of your baby, it isn’t easy and means being selfless and giving and these are the right yet very difficult traits of a wonderful mom.
Naomi is becoming an awesome mom and I am a proud grandma as I watch my daughter start to redefine her new life."
