When you think of a mother, what comes to mind? Is she the one who lovingly grabbed your hand as you tried to make your first steps? The one who wiped away your tears and helped mend your first broken heart? The one who stood proudly in the crowd cheering you on as you walked across the stage in your cap and gown? The one you still call for motherly advice?

For every life chapter, there’s no denying that moms play a crucial and tough role. They are the nurturers, leaders, givers, listeners, providers, role models, first hand holders, warm-hug givers and the ones on whom we can always rely. Moms are not only incredible pillars of strength within their families but in their communities and workplaces as well. There are not enough ways to truly give moms the recognition they deserve for their lifetime of patience, selflessness and hard work.

Washington FAMILY is honoring local mothers with our third annual Moms of the Year issue. We asked readers to nominate a special mom deserving of this recognition. After numerous entries, all describing incredible local moms, 12 mothers were selected to be featured in our May issue. These strong women have been through incredible journeys. Each of them has a unique perspective and a solid dose of motherly advice to share. We hope you enjoy reading their stories. Without further ado, meet our Moms of the Year!
