“Hey guys at AFP! I know you have had a lot of success with the “Eye Contact” photo (and my sister-in-laws family gets recognized often while out and about!) I sent in several years ago! We recreated the scene over Thanksgiving. Aunt Telcia is now 7 months pregnant, so we had my husband, Trent, ( Aunt Telcia’s brother) fill in. I thought you would like the see the picture and the growth of the family featured!”
