When my wife's 93-year old great-grandmother (Sunshine's great-great-grandmother) was hospitalized a few weeks ago, we dropped everything and booked a couple of tickets to the Philippines. You see, it has been nine years since her family has had five generations alive concurrently. And now that we've given rise to the long-anticipated fifth generation with our 7-month old, my wife wasn't about to let anything get in the way of her prized five-generation family photo.
Fortunately, great-great-grandmother’s condition has stabilized since, and she’ll probably stick around for some time to come.
So now, we’re here in the Philippines, and today we finally had the chance to have the photo the family has been waiting nine years for.
