A parent's wish is but one piece of evidence the court must consider. The Judge will also want to know why she feels this way. If she has reasons that are compelling, such as your being a child abuser or a drug addict, and those allegations are true, the Judge should not allow you to continue to be the custodian.
Without knowing more about the facts of your case, it is difficult to answer your question. It would be worth your while to make an appointment with a local attorney to discuss these issues in greater detail.

The court decides what is in the best interest of the child. Since you were awarded temporary custody, you were found suitable and in the best interest of the child. Unless the mother can provide some evidence why you it is not in the best interest for you to have custody, the court won't change that just because she is upset.
