Check Out Maryland's 'Best' Moms

Just in time for the Big Day, Patch recognizes moms nominated by readers.


It's Mother's Day weekend, and you know what that means—flowers, chocolates, maybe brunch or breakfast in bed for Mom. Patch wanted to help.

We honored Maryland's moms by encouraging their families to laud their tireless child-raising efforts on Patch sites across the state.

We asked readers in the Patch coverage area to upload photos of their moms and tell us what was great about the mother figures in their lives.

Wow, there are some amazing moms out there, and we wanted to recognize them with a .

After all the uploads were collected, a mom from each county we cover was randomly selected as a $50 gift card .

All the winners are featured in our gallery.

But it's not too late to share stories and photos about your Mom. Upload photos and videos and tell everyone in the comments why your mom is the best.

I'd like to wish a special happy Mother's Day to all of the men who have served as both mother and father to their children, instead of abandoning them to someone else's care--and to all of the mothers who have done double-duty as single parents, or as wives and husbands of an active-duty spouse. Carrying a foetus only makes one a biological mother: it's doing the hard, hard work of raising a child (yours, or anyone else's) that we celebrate this day. God bless everyone who has in any form helped to put a child on the right path, soothed a hurt, or mended a "boo-boo." In England, this day is called "Mothering Day"--and perhaps that's more fitting, to describe the kind of people it honors.
