Anna’s mother, who had a great deal of experience with childbirth, knew just what to say and how to comfort Anna when she needed it. Luck would have it that Olav was on vacation and in town when Anna went into labor. They had their first child, Per, when Anna was just nineteen and Olav twenty-one.

Lisa’s parents decided to leave England again and try western Canada, where they hoped there would be better opportunities. The two parents and three children took only what they could fit into two black steamer trunks and boarded a ship for the American East Coast. Two trunks for five people meant they could bring only essentials, and Lisa still remembers how hard it was to choose what she would bring. The dolls she had carried all the way from Africa were precious to her, but some had to be left behind.

About two years after they met, the couple found out that Anna was pregnant. Even though Anna had wanted to get away from her family just a few years before, now that she was going to have a child of her own, she wanted to be closer to them, especially during the long stretches when Olav was away working. She and Olav decided to move back to the town where Anna’s parents lived.
