    My mom is the best because she has always been the one to organize and take care of our family. When I was younger I was a very busy dancer and she helped run me around to competitions and practices for years. When I grew up and went on my own she still took care of my son while I was at work.

    Later on my grandparents grew older and my grandmother had Alzheimer’s, she took care of her so she wouldn’t have to go into a home until she died, even when my grandmother forgot all of us existed, she stayed strong and gave her the compassion and love she deserved.

    Now my father is very sick. He has numerous ailments that hinder his mobility and health. She takes care of him everyday, all awhile living through her own pain and ailments.

    I know my mom would do anything for me and my family, she has done so my whole life!!
    I hope I can win this contest so I can give her the prize.

      I was going to enter…..but I want Angelique to win!!!! I just wanted to shout out to my 92 year old mom, who STILL teaches water areobics at OMP pool and was recently awarded “THE OLDEST employee of the City of SSF EVER!!!” (she was NOT fond of the title!….but ever so graciously accepted anyway.) She has been the rock for my family and is always there to lend an ear, babysit or cook for us. AND to my beautiful daughter Amanda who manages to work at City Hall, coach AND play soccer, raise my 3 awesome precocious grandsons and STILL find time to be a good friend to those in need! I am SO BLESSED to have these AMAZING women in my life!!!

    Kristen Michelle Acosta: My mom and mother in law are both amazing women. Two very different people but amazing none the less. My mom was a stay at home mom to 4 kids and even though she drove me nuts, she shows me daily what a mother’s love truly is. She is always there if I need any help, she loves my kids sometimes I think more than me? she spoils us all rotten with all of her love.

    My mother in law is the most generous, hardworking, and just all an around good person. When I first met her she treated me as one of her own. Never made me feel like I wasn’t part of her family. She gives so much to everyone and anyone and never expects anything back in return.

    Both of my moms deserve everything in this world and I truly am blessed to have them both in my life❤️

    Edwin Tomas Arriola: My mom is 93 years old. She raised 5 children, her first husband was murdered when their 3rd child was months old, she survived murder treats, a revolusion, two major earthquakes. She was a single mother, she immigrated to a new country, started a new life. She helped raise my children, took care of them while my wife and I worked. My mom kicked butt… her memory is gone now, dementia and Alzheimers have taken their toll, she gets confused, she doesn’t recognize me sometimes, she pleads to go back home, to a country where we no longer belong. She is home though, she’s my mom, she’s a heck of a lady! She’s my hero…all 5’2″ of her!!

    Karina Benavides: My mom Raquel is the most amazing woman Mother and grandmother i know she is also the true meaning of unconditional love because no matter what the situation is she is always there for her 4 kids emotionally spiritually and financially. She raised us to be all that we can aspire to be and that there is no limits to how far we can go in life

    Melissa Marsh-Canites: My mother has done and continues to do everything she can for me. When I had my third child she retired from her job to watch my and my sister’s children. She goes out of her way to help me and pushes me to my potential. I wish I had listened to her more when I was younger. I love my mom to pieces and I would not be the mother I am had it not been for her.

    Laura Michaelis: My mother is an angel. She tried for years to have children of her own but never could come to term. She started foster care in 1988 and my sister and I were her first two kids. She had many kids in her home over the years and adopted many of us. Her daughters range in age from me at 42 and the youngest at 23, but it doesn’t stop there. She has also raised my 17 year old neice and is currently helping my youngest sister with her 1 year old daughter. She has always been there for all of us no matter how far away we are.

    Danielle Sainz: My Mom is the best because she single-handedly raised 3 amazing kids (if I do say so myself ?). Her 6 grandchildren adore her. Somehow, with her very full heart she is able to focus her love and attention to her 3rd grade students at Los Cerritos Elementary
    school. You be might so lucky to know her as “Mrs.
    O’Leary”. She is just an amazingly wonderful person. If you know her, you know exactly what I’m talking about!

    Laurie Ratliff: My mom was a kindergarten teacher in a small town. In 1987, she passed away at age 53. To this day, on Facebook, I have had people tell me she was their teacher and how much they loved her and how much she meant to them. She was a single parent and raised 3 kids on her own, and apparently helped raise a whole generation of kids who went to that small school. And I’m told I look almost EXACTLY like her…like eerily so. (Which I love ?)

    Ava Marie Romero: My mom was once a young and healthy lady , has raised 6 children and met my dad Marty when she moved to Susie way In South San Francisco in 1982-1983 And married in 1984.

    Brought me to the world in 1989 and had a wonderful life with all of us up until 2009 had her spinal cord and then later has COPD, it changed my life forever family’s life too and I didn’t know if I was going to have a mom to rely on, so because of her doctors and home care medical team from Kaiser i am thankful to still have a sweet mom today and instead of relying on her I just spend every moment of her time.

    Is determined to get her strength back, She loves our beloved Queensland heeler and one day will get out of bed and go to another author talk like this one (adult crafternoon Photo here) at South San Francisco public library and she’s the best mom friend ever I love my sweet mama and her hobbies are gardening and sewing she is proud to be married to a former city commissioner and has a daughter who is just as good as Rachael Ray indeed

    Kassy Kitty Arostegui: My mom is amazing because she came to this country as a refugee and she protected her family. She worked hard and made a wonderful life for me and she continues to do so with my child. She always says as long as she’s alive me and my son will never need anything, and she’s always proven it ❤️ I’d be completely lost without her .
