The Racine County Eye and Kenosha Lens tribute to Mother’s Day 2022: “A Few Good Moms”
Second nomination: Renee George

My mother has fostered over 50 children. Along the way she adopted 10 of us, although she couldn’t have biological kids, it didn’t stop her from raising and loving us kids as if we were. She never treated any of us any differently because of where we came from, what obstacles and trauma we’ve been through or how we ended up in her house. We were always loved no matter what.

If you need her any time, day or night, she always shows up no matter what. She is the type of mother people aspire to be; someone who has so much love in her heart and soul and shows it by taking you in. Blood doesn’t make a family, love does, and we know that because of her.

This story shows that blood doesn’t make family and that people can live and love each other regardless of their backgrounds, race and ethnicity and we’ve learned that because of her.

A Few Good Moms

As Mother’s Day approaches, the Racine County Eye and Kenosha Lens put out a search for “A Few Good Moms.”

Being in the third year of a pandemic, a war in Europe, political nightmares and more has thrown significant weight on all of us. But amongst all of the strife, there are many positive stories.

Racine and Kenosha Counties are overflowing with good moms. A good mom can make a difference in the lives of many, a few, or even just one person.

This Mother’s Day, we are showcasing a few incredible moms who have made a difference in their community, in their family, or in the life of even one child. Each mom has a story and we want to start telling them. We are publishing the nominations daily until Mother’s Day, and our two featured moms will have their stories published on Mother’s Day.

As a special bonus, the mothers whom we feature on Mother’s Day will receive a special gift from a local salon as a way of saying “thank you” for allowing us to get to know them closer and to be able to really tell their stories.
