I absolutely fell in love with these photos the moment I saw them! I want these photos in my scrapbook because they have such a deep meaning to me. Maybe it is because my grandmother was taken away from us at such a young age and I feel a certain connection with her through these photos. As a mother myself, I know the love she felt for her baby. The fact that this baby is my mother, well I am sure I do not need to explain the reason I love these photos so much!

It was July 23, 1946.
My grandmother, Esther, with my mother, Deborah.
My mother was three months old here. She was 6 weeks premature due to a scheduled C Section. (She doesn't look like a premie! hahaha) My grandmother was Rh-. My mother would have had an older brother but he was stillborn due to not having a test for Rh-.

I needed to paint under the word timeless with Red!!! UGH! Oh well, isnt it amazing what you see after you photograph it!?

WOW! How beautiful! Your grandmother would be proud.
I, too, was RH neg and had to have BOTH shots at 7 mos preggers and after delivery. My mom was also and delivered all 3 of us by section!
I wish I had a similar pic so I could "scrap lift!" GREAT, GREAT job!

This is such a beautiful layout! Like your grandmother and Veronica who posted above, I am RH- also. I'm so thankful to be a mom at this time, with so many advances in medicine. I have been scrapping pictures of 3 of my Dad's 5 brothers who each died at young ages -- all due to common ailments/diseases that could have been treated had they had today's medical knowledge. So sad!
