2020 Abilities First My Abilities Are Super Cover Kid Contest Winners

Meet the winners of our contest

Congratulations to all those who sent us photos. Great batch of kids. All parents will receive a mock Hudson Valley Parent cover with their child featured.

Read the stories below as four Moms talk about their winning kids.

Dillon, 4 years

Mom is Meaghan from Cuddebackville

Dillon is the happiest, sweetest boy you’ll ever meet. He was born at 24 weeks weighing only 1 lb. He has cerebral palsy and non verbal. But he doesn’t let that ever get in his way. We have watched him overcome so many hurdles and being proud of him in an understatement. He has come so far and has touched so many lives.


Gabby, 4 years

Mom is Maria from Central Valley

Gabby is four years old and is an identical twin! She loves playing with her sisters, going on hikes with her family, and being silly!


Tori, 3 years

Mom is Nicole from Hopewell Junction

Tori is a very happy three year old little girl. She loves music, singing, bubbles, riding her bike and playing on her swing set!

James, 11 years

Mom is Cindy from Poughkeepsie

James is an 11 year old student at Abilities First. He was diagnosed with GM1 Gangliosidosis Type 2 Juvenile on November 7th, 2019. He has a love for rescue vehicles, and both his laughter and smile are contagious, always spreading joy and happiness to those around him....

Thank you to Abilities First and all who entered and voted for all these great kids.
