One of the highlights of Pope Francis’ visit to the United States is his attendance at the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia.

It got us thinking ... The modern American family comes in all different colors, shapes and sizes. As part of our coverage of the pope’s visit and his focus on family, NBCNews.com asked readers to share photos of their family — and boy, have they ever. The response has been terrific.
