Deserving Mom Essay Winners
Carol Garner of Tustin, CA
“She is the epitome of what a mother should be. Selfless, caring, empathetic, nurturing, your biggest supporter and the person who is always there and present at life’s biggest moments. It wasn’t until I became a mother that I truly understood all that she sacrificed for me and my three sisters. She was the team mom and the one that sewed all of our Easter dresses so we would match. She made my childhood so memorable with all of the little things she did for us, love notes in our lunch boxes (before Pinterest made it cool), homemade dinners EVERY night and whenever it would rain she would always bake something amazing!”

Claudia Rodriguez of Santa Ana, CA
“My mother is one of the most selfless humans I know. She defines sacrifice in the purest way. As the oldest of 17 children, I have seen my mom give her life for her family. She has taught me that the best way to feel love is by giving it unconditionally. She has taught me to accept hardships with love and patience. Raising 17 children is hard but not impossible and my mom has taught me that there is no limit to love.”
