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:

Marc and Krystal with Chandler (age 16), Aiden (age 14), Ethan (age 11), Everly (age 2) and Ellis (now 11 months): “We brought Ellis home the day after Valentine’s Day last year. Her siblings were smitten with her the moment they saw her! We surprised them at school, and they broke into tears as soon as we put her in their arms.”

Ryan and Ben with Theo, at 11 hours old (now 11 weeks)

Leslie with Isabel (now 9 months)
