“Dad and I held hands but this time it felt different. I photographed the moment. Sadly it became our final photo together since Dad passed away months later. Every time I see this photo, I remember the feeling of warmth in our hands and in our hearts.” Liz Gonzalez North Bergen, New Jersey

“This picture is precious to me because my son Mikey was 9 years old when I became pregnant again. He was upset at first. He worried about me not loving him as much as the baby. Needless to say, he fell in love with my second child while I was still pregnant. And, he cared for his little brother as if he were his own. He was my little ones God for 18 years and then we lost him to a tragic car accident. My little one and I miss him dearly and hope to see him again in heaven.” Elaine Morales Kissimmee, Florida

“This photo shows what I constantly drill into my Girl Scout troop. ‘Dream Big and Reach to the Sky... for there are no limits!’ I have led our group of Hispanic girls for 11 years and now they are young ladies with Big Dreams!” Margie Olivarez Lubbock, Texas
