Wistful Wednesday: 1970

These are a couple of my cousins, they are lucky kids, they were adopted by my Uncle Adolph and Aunt Lila back in the late 1960's.  They were much waited for babies.  My Uncle and Aunt built a brand new house in preparation for their first baby's arrival..I do not remember if they knew that they were getting a little boy..I just remember a huge baby shower and two new parents beaming with pride.  His sister followed a few years later. This photograph makes me smile every time I look at it..it was taken about forty years ago..A Paramedic/Fireman and a Hair Stylist/Teachers Assistant :)

  12. What little cuties they were playing in the mud. It must have been a special time for your aunt and uncle when they welcomed them into their lives.

  15. Nothing like a good mud puddle to keep you busy for hours! My aunt and uncle waited ten years and never could get pregnant so they waited to adopt a boy and then a girl...and then my aunt had surprise twin boys! I remember the excitement when the calls finally came for the adopted babies arrivals. :)
