In honor of Marie's birthday I scanned in a portrait from almost 40 years ago. Her big sister Lynn is holding her for the photographer.

Marie and Lynn

Although Marie was born with her feet turned inward you wouldn't know it now. She's traveled a lot, even going around the world by herself.

When she was an infant I massaged her little ankles every day to keep them supple until she was big enough to have them put in braces for a while. The treatment worked well and by the time she was old enough to walk she learned to walk normally and hasn't stayed still since.
