If the winner doesn't email us their mailing address by May 15, the prize will go to the first alternate who has done so, and to keep things fair we will not email alternates, just post them to Fetch!

I love you, Mom. I'm sorry that I didn't realize how hard I made it sometimes. You never gave up on me and you will never know how much that means. I am what I am because of you!

Danielle said...

I never realized how much you loved me until I became a mother myself, I never realized how much you did without for me until I have done some of the same. You are a amazing mother / woman & someday I hope I will be the same.

Dear Mom,

My eyes and heart were blind before, to how much you did out of your love for me. It took many years, but I finally understand. I could never begin to express how much you mean to me. Thank you for being so patient.

You were there for me every step of the way, loving me and supporting me through so many ups and downs. Now, it's my turn to give back. When things break down, like they have recently, I only hope I can be as good to you as you have been to me. I love you.

Mama, Thank you for loving your grandbaby the same way you've loved me! We will both be eternally grateful to you. Love, E&J ericaholt at

Lilith Silvermane said...


Thank you for chosing me! I was 2 years old when you and dad met me. I was scared, abandoned and needing a soft touch and a family. You gave me that, you gave all of us that! You adopted us all by choice, not because we were born to you.

You gave us the greatest gift... the gift of a warm, safe place to live and love.

Thank you,
Suzanne Bastien

Danielle said...

You are loved for all you do AND all that you wouldn't let us do! If I can be half the mother you have been, I know my boys will turn out great!

we haven't always had the easiest relationship but i just want you to know i do appreciate you and love you. i know you always tried your best.
love jessica

cmwheeler said...

Because you took in a confused teenager and loved me like your own. Because you gave me rules and structure, and loved me even when I raged against them. Because I was so dramatic and read too much, and you bought me books, came to all of the plays and loved me anyway. Because I was lost, you brought me back home, and loved me all the more. Because you cried at my wedding, and meant it, and cried when I had my first baby, and meant it. Because you flew across the country at a moments notice to be my support when the second baby wasn't doing so well. Oh, Ma. Everything I am today is because you loved me. Thank you, every day, I thank you.

TaraP said...

I'm having trouble with one baby, how did you do it with twin babies and 2 toddlers at the same time?! If you could survive that, I guess I'll make it through this!
Thanks for being a role model.

I only wish it hadn't taken so long for me to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. I can only hope to be as good a mom to my kids as you were to us.

Blessed said...


I'll never understand how you could leave me alone when I was just a baby - especially now that I have my own darling little girl. I'm just thankful that you finally got help and that I can get to know you now. I'm thankful that Daddy taught me forgiveness. I'm thankful that you love my stepmother and appreciate what she did for me. I thank God for working miracles in our family.

Bezen Hindistan said...


On my birthdays it is actually you who should be celebrated for giving birth to me, for putting your life aside for me and for making me who I am today. Now I understand what it really is. I cannot thank you enough. I love you.

Wow, Mom. I had no idea.
I am so thankful for you, and I'm so sorry for the difficult times when I must have broken your heart.

I love you.
Your favorite daughter,

jeske_posse said...

Thank you for all that you've done. I'm beginning to see how much you sacrificed for me and my needs. I remember you going to work with holes in the soles of your shoes while I always had good ones. I'd ask why you didn't buy yourself new shoes...and you'd quickly push them under the bed. I'd break things or wonder why you were so upset when I made a doll dress from the sheets you just bought. You made me who I am today, and I pray that I can be half the Mom that you've been to me. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I love you.

You smiled with a twinkle in your eye when you found out I was having my first daughter.

Almost three years into motherhood, I can see that you're right!

Hey Mom,
I'm sorry, but not for everything. And I know you're sorry too even though you'd never ever admit it. So I forgive you too... for some things. Anyway, even if I have issues with you as a mother, you're the best grandmother to my kids I could have ever hoped for. Happy Mother's Day to both of us. I love you anyway.
