Supermom of the Crossroad’s Area
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers, grandmothers, godmothers, aunts, step mothers, and anyone who is like a mother to a child. We hope you have an amazing day and know how much you are loved and appreciated.
We asked you to tell about your the person you thought was the Crossroad’s Supermom – a woman with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. We asked you vote on our top 5 finalists.
We would like to congratulate our top two finalists! Janet Hilsabeck and Kina Veliz were the top Supermom with the most votes. Janet had 172 and Kina had 169. Both moms won a prize package from Indigo Day Spa and The Sky Restaurant and flowers from McAdams Floral! See what their children said about them below.
Sarah Haper nominated her mom Janet Hilsabeck. My mom raised two daughters on her own, until my stepdad came along when we were 14 and 16. During this time, my mom, being the sole provider for our family, earned her bachelors and masters degrees. Not only is she a super mom, she’s a super nurse, as well. While she was raising us and continuing her education, she worked, for a period of time, as the only neonatal nurse practitioner in the area. She is now one of two. I am now a teacher at a local elementary school and my sister is a nurse in a local oncology office. My mom is now a super granny to her three grandkids. She never misses a game or an opportunity to support any of them. My mom started with literally nothing, and has built the life she dreamed about for herself, her children, and her grandchildren.
Emery Cordova nominated her mother Kina Veliz. My mom has been battling lupus for several years. Through chemo, sickness, and even on her weakest days, she still manages to maintain her home. She takes full time care of my grandmother, and is even a (Grand)parent volunteer at Vickers elementary. She is my hero because no matter how she feels she always puts others first. Her strength and determination have fueled me to be a better wife and mother to my daughter. I hope to be half the incredible woman she is.
