    Easter 1969

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Teri Coley Adams was just seven years old when this photo was taken on Easter Sunday 1969. Adams, along with her mother and little brother, stand smiling in their Sunday best outside of her grandmother’s home in Cochran, Georgia.

    Adams says “1968-69 was pretty memorable for me. That was the year my father was in Vietnam,” which is why he was missing from this family portrait.
    - taliaday, CNN iReport producer

    This photo was taken Easter 1969, two months before my Dad returned from Vietnam. My grandmother had hacked all my hair off in a Twiggy attempt and my mother's
    skirts were short and almost a little mod. At seven years old, I thought my matching hat and purse were the pinnacle of fashion.
