Valentine’s Day — a day for celebrating love of all kinds, including the love brought into the world by adoption! So, to help celebrate, we’re asking for your “Love at First Sight” photos — the first photo you took with your child as a family.

Want to enter? Here are the rules:

  1. Email your favorite photo (one photo per child and family, please!) of your child(ren) that shows your “Love at First Sight” adoption moment to
  2. Title your email as “Photo Contest.”
  3. In the body of the email, please include your name, your children’s name(s) and ages. Example: John Smith, Age 2 – Parents: Robert and Jane Smith

All photos must be submitted by 5 p.m. CST on Wednesday, Feb. 6.

How are the winners of the contest selected? By you! Photo submissions that meet the entry criteria will be posted to our Facebook page after the deadline has passed (first names and ages only). There, you, your family and friends will be able to vote for your favorite photo with a “like.” Comments and shares will not be counted, so make sure your people like the original photo to make it count!

Voting will close at 5 p.m. CST on Wednesday, Feb. 13. Winners will be featured the next day on our Facebook and Instagram pages, as well as on our blog and in our newsletter.

We can’t wait to see your special “Love at First Sight” adoption moments. Good luck!
