Drum roll please.....

And the winner is.....
And yes, I'm totally "green" and reused an old envelope to write all the entrants names on :)  Okay, maybe it had more to do with the fact that I didn't want to get up to get a fresh sheet of paper.  Either way, it got the job done.
Congratulations Maggie Barrow!!!! Your are the winner of the following:  A 30 minute mini-session and a 12x12 or 11x14  float wrap print of your favorite image from your session!

The finalists from our other 1/2 of the giveaway are below.  Get a box of kleenex if you are a cryer!

1. I wanted to nominate a family who I think deserves the Big Giveaway. I have to admit, I don't know the family personally (I went to school with Brenda's sister). But this family has been on for the ride of their life the last month. Mark and Brenda are a strong couple, that have en equally strong faith. Their son Elijah who is about 1 & 1/2 years old got a form on Meningitis last month, and has made remarkable progress. He is still in the hospital, and Brenda is due to give birth in June with another son. This is a strong, beautiful family. They deserve an opportunity such as this, so they can capture their beautiful life and family since they know just how special life is. 

2.  Little Caffery and his family deserve a session with your studio.  Caffery was born May 10th, and his parents thought he was healthy and perfect until their world was turned upside down 3 days later.  He began showing signs that he was becoming ill and was rushed to a local Children's hospital. He is still perfect but has a "special heart".  He is currently waiting to have his surgery to fix his heart.  I think his family deserves a session because they did not have the opportunity to capture those precious first days.  I would love for them to have a session waiting for them when they arrive home with their special little boy!  www.caringbridge.org/visit/caffreyfahey

Would you leave a comment with your vote for one of these special families?  And while you are at it...check out their Caringbridge sites and say a little prayer for both of these special little boys and their families!  We will close the voting this Saturday at 10am.  All votes prior to that point will be counted. Can't wait to share one of these special families with you all.
Thanks to everyone for participating!
Have a wonderful day :)
