There really is no love like the love between a parent and their child. And, when we asked for some of your best pictures capturing that moment, you didn’t disappoint.

Thanks to everyone who entered this year’s “Love at First Sight” photo contest. We loved seeing each and every one of your “first sight” moments!

And now, without further ado, here are the winners of this year’s “Love at First Sight” photo contest:

Valerie & Kizzy with
Kiziya (now 1 year)

Leo (now 3 months) and Ashley. “The birth mother pushed to have Ashley in the delivery room. This photo was taken right after they wrapped him up and placed him in Ashley’s arms for the first time.”

“Garry & Ashley with son, Jameson, less than 24 hours old.”
