The Smith Kids



This is my most cherished photo, my parent's wedding day in 1942. Text reads:

My mother had 17 brothers and sisters,

all Depression Era babies and all

remarkable people. Despite being born

to poverty, every one of them rose

above their humble beginnings and

became "someone", a pact they made

together upon the death of thier father.

Their collective strength has impacted

my life beyond measure, my Aunts in

particular. At a time when women

were expected to stay home and raise

babies, they were radicals and entered

the world as writers, artists, movie

studio executives, Zeigfeld dancers,

bankers, WWII Marine nurses,

real estate moguls and CIA agents.

All while raising families, some

alone being widows before 30.

They passed along their strength

to us all, and proved over and

over that laughter, and family,

are always the best medicine.

Candee, this is gorgeous! My mother is one of 10 children, so I, too, have a very large family! Although, I can't say they've accomplished as much as your family has! What a great heritage!
