  1. So far the biggest challenge I’ve faced as a mom was when my daughter was born. We didn’t know who would care for her, if both my husband & I worked. But, after thousands of dollars of hospital bills (I had a very difficult pregnancy) on top of college loans, we were not sure that we could afford to live on one income. However, we made the decision that I would be a stay at home mom, no matter how financially difficult it would be. So, over the last two years, I’ve had to figure out unique ways to supplement our income (i.e. mystery shopping, etc) that I could do, even when my husband was traveling. The Lord has definitely provided along the way, and our daughter has never starved or been watched by anyone besides my husband & I. 😉

    And, I’ve been blessed to be there for every milestone in my daughter’s life. My most memorable moment was having her spontaneously give me a kiss and say “I love you” for the first time! It made the sleepless nights worth it. 🙂

    For the past two years I have picked up other children along with my two who were out for summer school break and have taken them to our university were they can swim as long as they want for $3.00 in an olympic pool. All of their parents have full time jobs and I felt so sorry for the children couped up in the house till their parents came home. Needless to say it is like a suana in the pool area so sitting there is very uncomfortable to me because I am unable to swim due to a fractured hip. I would also pick up other children on Tuesdays and Thursdays who wanted to join the chess club at my son’s school but had no one to take them before 8:00am on those days.

  3. I have 3 children and I’ve never had anyone take care of them (other than their daddy) a day in their lives. Our families live out of state so we’ve never had any outside help. I pride myself on having been able to raise them and guide them on our own.

    As far as a memorable moment, I guess the first one that comes to mind was watching my sons greet their baby sister when she was born in the hospital. They were so surprised to see that she had actually come out of my belly. 😉

  4. The biggest event as a mom that I’ve ever faced is when my daughter was born 13 weeks too early. I had a 2 year old son at home who needed his mom and a critically ill daughter who was in a hospital an hour away. I was torn daily on where I should be. I also had to learn how to give my son some sort of normalcy. Of course, soon I learned that what I was going through was nothing compared to what I had to deal with when our daughter died at 6 weeks old. It would have been so easy to just go to bed and stay there. Definitely was not an option for me. Our families were both far away and my husband had to work. I had to learn to put on a happy face for my son and keep living. There were plenty of times that he saw me cry but I really tried to save all my tears for after he went to bed. I struggled so much but was determined to keep living while also keeping my daughter’s memory alive. I did all the hard work necessary to get through that time. I have also been able to use my experience to help other moms. I will never understand why our daughter was taken from us, but I have learned to cherish the short time we had with her and to love every single moment I have with our children.

    Inspiration and memories are so funny… the very first thing that came to mind is when my daughter (technically step – but after 10 years she is mine!) and her stepsister (from her mom – I was still her “other mom”) were both with us and her sister liked my shoes… I have tiny feet and these were sparkly pink sandals from Walmart’s childrens department. So we got her a pair too. She followed me around, wanted to wear my clothes and stuff… was a little me. It was so funny to have my extra daughter dressing like me and etc. You hear all these nightmare stories about combined families, but boyohboy have we been lucky…

  6. Vickie Couturier says:

  7. I don’t think of myself as a Mom who goes beyond. I am just Mom. I mean, wouldn’t all of us go to the ends of the earth for our children? I guess my defining moment, so far, was when my son who has a metabolic disorder called PKU was very sick. He is already only at the 1st percentile on the growth chart and when he became sick he lost over 4 lbs. We had been in and out of the ER and had visited multiple doctors. We drove 3 hours to the children’s hospital on very little sleep (I was also pregnant at the time) and we were trying to get an appointment with the Pediatric GI specialist. There are few in the state & very hard to get an appointment. We basically dropped work and everything to stay at a hotel and pray that we could be fit in. We weren’t leaving till he was seen because the local doctors didn’t know how to help him. We couldn’t afford more than a night or two and crossed our fingers. We stayed till we could be seen. I remember how terrified I was… I hardly ate or slept because I was so worried about my son. I would have done anything to help him.

    Happily we were seen and he slowly started to recover. It has been hard to make-up ground in weight and health, but I like to think it was my sheer will and persistence that helped him.

  8. In 2006, I retired from a 30 yr career. I was looking to a life of leisure. My daughters were grown, married and a families of their own. In early Oct my youngest called, in hysteria, her 2 yr old was in the emergency room having a grand mal seizure. These seizures continued to occur daily and I left my leisure life and move 3000 miles to help. My daughter not only had this child but 4 others under 8. This little boy needed to have hands on, all day and night. And the stress on the family was tremendous. My daughter, now, had one more adult to relive her. We followed a regimen of meds, nutritional therapy, and chiropractic medicine and 4 yrs later he is seizure free and I moved out to live my life of leisure.
    2 months later, this same daughter announced she was having #6. This yet to be born baby girl has a heart arrhythmia and suspicious amniotic fluid. We are all holding our breath until she is born. (Any day now) If this little girl needs more care then my daughter can handle, (along with 5 other kids), I will again leave my life of leisure.
    Why? Because that’s what Mom’s do.

  9. Soha Molina says:

    I’d like to believe that I go above and beyond as a mom by staying very active in my daughter’s school. I volunteer for activities, I participate in all events and help out in class. I am a PTA member and in general, very visible.

  10. Jenna Wood says:

    Many people take for granted the ability to be a mother, thus neglecting their children as the blessings they are; while so many hard working- magical moms go unrecognized. Being a mother is the hardest job any woman will ever have, and the highest paying. There is not one day that shouldn’t be cherished and celebrated for the milestone it is! I have tried for years now for a child of my own, and in my journey have realized the role of a mother is not just for those with children of their own body, but those who love and nurture children of all blood. While I may not qualify to be nominated, I am ‘nana’ to 2 wonderful children who light up my day every chance they get!

  11. I went beyond just getting my children into this world. I was sick the whole time I was pregnant. I swell up like a balloon from fluid retention. I suffer from gestational diabetes. My body just wasn’t made for bearing children.
    And having made so much effort bringing them into the world, I don’t let any one else take care of them. No day care, and babysitters have been only Grandma & Grandpa on very rare occasions. There has only been 3 times I’ve missed reading the bedtime stories & tucking them into bed, and each of those involved a hospital visit.

  12. I was in the hospital having baby 2 and my 2year brought me a necklace from the gum ball machine, telling dad this is my mama’s present. It was the first time he had been separated from me at night and he was so happy to see me and gave me that little necklace. It means the most of all the jewelry I own. I had to endure being away from him.

  13. Shawna OBrien says:

    As a mom, I’ve certainly had my challenges to face and overcome. However, it is those challenges that have shaped my life, made me a better person and inspired me to do more than I ever thought I could. My husband has a chronic disease that affects his day to day abilities to work and function, so it leaves a lot more responsibility on me to provide financially as well as be a mom to two young boys ages 7 and 3. My youngest was born with a rare brain disorder and so he has a lot of medical and therapy appointments and various services and supports that need to be arranged, so that also keeps me very busy and presents challenges in trying to balance work and my child’s needs. I am fortunate in that I have worked in the Social Services field for many years and have a lot of experience specifically working with people with developmental disabilities. This experience has benefited my son in terms of me understanding how the medical system works and the other agencies and organizations that provide some services for my son. This means that I’ve been able to be a very effective and strong advocate for my son which I will never stop doing this for him. He has given me such a strong sense of what kind of life and opportunities people with developmental disabilities should have. My son will most likely never be able to live on his own and will always need to be cared for. A lot of people I’ve known with a loved one with Developmental Disabilities that need 24/7 care, see this as a guilt laden burden on them. Many choose to place their loved one in a care home. My intention here is not to be critical, but to state the facts as I’ve experienced. I’ve never felt that my son was a burden. In fact, I feel that he is a blessing. When he was first Diagnosed, the doctors told me he would never hold his head up, sit up, crawl, walk, grasp objects and that he would be on a feeding tube and die young. Well, fortunately for my son, he has proven those doctors wrong. My son can now do all of those things and he eats and drinks fine and is very healthy. Instead of thinking about what my son cannot do or the care that he requires, I see him as a beautiful and happy boy who has worked hard and overcome many challenges and defied the expectations that others put on him. I am proud to be his mother and he will live with me till the day I die. I’m pretty sure that life has more challenges in store for me, but I can tell you that whatever comes my way, I’ll continue to face them head on and make the best of the life God have given me.

  14. The only thing I ever wanted to be was a Mom. I endured 14 miscarriages before my dream came true. My daughter is the biggest blessing to me. Everything I do for her is because I love her and I love being her mom. I am not the healthiest person, I have lupus, arthritis and get lots of infections, but no matter what, I am there for her whenever she needs me. I volunteer at her school, sit on the PTA board and do anything else that is needed to ensure she has a great education and childhood! Do I go above and beyond? The only answer I have is that I do whatever it takes to make sure my daughter has everything she needs! I’m just a mom…and I love every minute of it!

  15. My mom is awesome. She takes great care of our family. She is under quite a bit of stress, but her work always shines through. Would love it if I could win something like this for her.

  16. Jennifer H says:

    Potty training my 25m old lil man! I totally feel like I triumphed!! We got potty traning down in 4 days. I am so proud of my lil man. I stuck w/it, stayed positive, cleaned the messes and kept on going. We were determined and it payed off!

  17. Amanda A says:

    My husband is in the air force and was deployed frequently. It is hard to be left behind as a single parent when you have no family around to help. Thankfully we made it through, and he is now in the reserve so we have him home with us much more often!

  18. For many years, I have/do struggle with major depression and bipolar. I made a vow to myself a long time ago, that I would try/be the best mom I could be. Well, I am glad to say my kids have grown up into responsible, caring adults/teenager

  19. Susan Margaret says:

    I am not a mom who works beyond but I am a mother figure to my nieces who mean the world to me! I go above and beyond by acting as a support system for my nieces and for their parents. I provide care and help whenever I am needed and I work to make them feel that they have another caring adult in their lives when they can’t talk to their parents. I offer them advice and a shoulder to lean on when they need it. I have chosen not to be a parent because I wanted to focus on caring for my nieces the same way that my aunt cared for me – in my mind that type of extra love and support is vital!

  20. Peggy Gorman says:

    I never knew how much I could love until my children were placed in my arms when they were born.
    Through the years of working ,cleaning the house ,cooking dinner I had to be super Mom to 4 beautiful children .
    Each one so different but so alike we went through so much. We spent time together,having fun and doing things that didn’t cost much because money was an issue. That didn’t stop the hugs and fun!
    Losing my job ,going back to school at 40 (taking my children because I didn’t have the money for daycare) We made it through!
    My son once asked me what I thought he should be when he grew up and I told him “It doesn’t matter what ,as long as you try your best everyday and are happy with what you decide to become. Be happy with your life and who you are!”
    Watching them graduate and starting their lives is a joy,seeing them so happy brings me happiness!
    The saddest moments in my life and I will never the same , is losing 2 sons. Having to say goodbye broke my heart and it can never be mended. I have memories that will carry me for the rest of my life. No parent should have to bury their children,I miss them everyday.
    I have been blessed with knowing my children .I have added a daughter when my son was married and another son when my daughter was married. We all miss the guys , they are keeping an eye on us and their memories were with us on these special days.
    Being a Mother is wonderful,its overflowing you with love ,an unconditional love that you give to your children. I am so glad I am a Mother
