My Pictorial Family Reunion
For many years we were lead to believe that there were no early photos of us. Us meaning my sisters and brothers. When I was 6 years old we had a house fire that burned up everything in our home. We lived in the rural countryside, so there was no fire engines to come to put the fire out.
There was only one photo of me as a toddler. I was almost two standing on our local bank steps. All dressed up in my my short set and patent leather shoes along with my brother.
Well, a cousin visited his aunt (my stepaunt) and saw a photo in her photo album. He took a picture of it with his phone. He texted it to my brother. My sister texted it to me. I was getting ready to turn off my phone and saw the photo and was so excited. I could not believe it.
Not only did the photo include 5 of us (my youngest brother was not born yet) but it also included my mom and my stepfather. We all werer a family for many years. When I looked at my Mom, it was just like looking at my youngest sister. When I looked at my oldest brother, I saw his son. When I looked at me, I saw my niece. When I looked at my middle brother I saw his sons' faces. When I looked at my youngest sister I saw her daughter and granddaughter.
I am soooooo excited about this photo. That's why I'm calling it a "Pictorial Family Reunion" It was just like a reunion. We all got on the phone and called each other. Just pure awesome! My brother is a photographer and he cleaned the photo up some.
I just had to share with my AfriGeneas Family my Pictorial Family Reunion. I believe the photo was taken about 1968. I have no idea who took the photo but I am thanking whomever anyway.
