It’s been a back-to-school season like no other. Who could have predicted masks would be this fall’s biggest fashion accessory?

We loved seeing how our American Adoptions family is navigating this start to the school year. Thanks to everyone who entered our contest; you’re all A students in our books!

Now, without further ado, check out this year’s photo contest winners, as chosen by you:

Ellis (18 months old): “Our sweet baby girl’s first day of Mom’s Day Out! All her siblings (Chandler, Aiden, Ethan and Everly) were so excited for her, but so worried about her going to school without them. No worries, she walked into the classroom and took charge!”

Adam Joseph (age 3), Pre-K

PJ (age 6): “PJ was excited for his first day of kindergarten!”

Here at American Adoptions, we are always looking to share more photos from our adoptive and birth families. If you have a photo you’d like to share, make sure to tag us on social media with the hashtag #AmericanAdoptions. You could see your photo on our Facebook and Instagram pages!
