Family Voices Announces the winners of the 2013 Mother's Day Contest. Entrants were asked to share what the word ‘MOTHER' means to them, using one word or phrase for each of the letters in the word ‘M-O-T-H-E-R.' Winners were chosen anonymously by the general public, with 15 people casting their votes.

Thank you so much to everyone who entered, and to all of the judges, for taking your time to participate with Family Voices and celebrate all the mothers of children and youth with special needs and/or disabilities. You make the world go round!
