Meet the women in my family

Say hello to the women in my family.

These women’s lives go back over 250 years. These women have lived in very different times. They all have me in common. They have something else in common. They have all held a baby in their arms and dreamt about their child’s future.

I get lost staring at these photos, imagining what these women were like, knowing only my own mother and grandmother personally. My mum tells me about her grandmother but before that there are no tales about these women’s laughs and loves.

How short memory is.
