With more than 60 entries, the competition was tight! Thanks to our Photo Contest Work Team members who diligently deliberated over the many excellent photos and well-written captions. Here's what they had to say:

"The photo contest is another important way that the Council practices what it preaches regarding inclusion and family life." - Amanda Lay
 
" The photos did a superb job of capturing ordinary moments of extraordinary relationships." - Russ Young
 
But it's not over yet! There are seven photos on our Facebook page that are contenders for the "Fan Favorite"--it's time for your input! Vote for the "Fan Favorite" by "liking" the photo you think best exemplifies the meaningful bonds that families share.

The photo with the most "likes" by midnight on Monday, May 22 will be named "FAN FAVORITE" and will receive $100. Spread the word!
