Engaged Couple Find Photo Showing They Crossed Paths as Toddlers

Here’s a fun story that might convince you to snap all the photos you can of your kids: Alex and Donna Voutsinas were gathering photos in preparation of their wedding when Alex suddenly noticed something in one of Donna’s childhood photographs. The photo, taken 20 years earlier when Donna was 5, showed Alex’s father in the background pushing Alex in a stroller!

After visiting his mother’s house, Alex found photographs from the same day in which he and his father were wearing the same clothes, confirming that they were indeed the people in Donna’s photo.

What’s even crazier is that at the time the photo was taken, Alex and Donna lived in different countries, with Alex living in Montreal and Donna living in Florida. They eventually met each other at work, fell in love, and became another of Cupid’s success stories.

    That's awesome! It's a small world after all.

    My boyfriend and I have been crossing paths since 1997. The last “ships passing in the night” moment before we started dating in January was this past New Year's Eve when we both traveled from where we live to Austin, TX to party on 6th Street. We stayed in the same hotel and never saw each other. 14 days later, we met again for the 3rd time and I guess it was a charm because we finally started going out.

    My older sister and her ex-boyfriend dated for two years when they were in their mid-twenties but they ended up not working out. Months after the break-up she was looking through a photo album from college and saw in the background of one of her pictures was her boyfriend (much younger) when they coincidentally were at the same NYC lounge years before they even knew each other….

    Someone i know at work was taken to meet his fiance's grandparents in a little village in the middle of England, and as they approached the house he realised that his grandparents used to live in the next house, and as children during the school summer holidays the two of them used to play together in the back garden.

    I think we all cross paths which each other in this world more than we realize, theres always that six degrees of seperation

    This is so awesome! My fiancé and I grew up a block from each other over 30 years ago. He was best friends with my best friends big brother. We knew each other by name, but never connected. Lost track of him after high school and then two years ago, we literally bumped into each other in Austin at Comic don in front of Kevin Sorbo’s booth. It happens more than we realize. My fiancée and I were at several concerts after high school simultaneously, and renaissance fairs.. Always just missing each other. I guess we just weren’t ready for each other yet.

    Read the article before you open your sarcastic mouth.

  • Gino Sciretta

    Hes taking about SMWeeks’s comment u idiot. How about you learn how to differentiate a reply with a comment. lol.

  • Felipe_Paredes

    this was the most innocent post ever, yet people find a way to fight and insult each other…

  • tomdavidsonjr

    Gino – the means by which I was reading this thread did not split each comment into tidy little replies. It was all one big string of comments. Reading it on the web now, it is apparent that Unregistered Coward was replying to SMWeeks. It makes my comment impertinent, but it certainly does not make me an idiot. But thanks for being such an upstanding netizen. I think you might find your particular brand of drive-by commenting more welcome at /r/photography, over on Reddit.
