Donna (front right) and Alex (in stroller, center) at Disney World
Thirty years ago, when Alex and Donna Voutsinas lived in separate countries, long before they met and married, a family photo of little Donna at Walt Disney World also shows Alex in a stroller in the background.
That fateful realization came just one week before their wedding eight years ago. Alex and Donna had been going through old family snapshots. There, in the blurry background of a picture of 5-year-old Donna was 3-year-old Alex being pushed down Main Street at the same moment in 1980 by his father. The senior Voutsinas’s distinctive jet-black hair with its white tuft caught his eye. …
We’ve taken pictures of the kids,” [Alex] said, “and they say they’re looking for their future wives in the background.”
Okay, it really is a small world after all.
