The beautiful thing about old photos is that they can be stored in a box and kept away. These days, photos are kept on a phone, and if the phone is destroyed, the photos can be lost. There is a recent story where a mother uncovers an old photo that would change the lives of her daughter and son-in-law.
Before I get to that story, I want to talk about fate. Fate is defined as a development of events that occur beyond a person’s control. Some people believe that fate doesn’t exist and they make their own life based on their own decisions. But sometimes there are incidents that take place that we can’t explain.

The story begins with the marriage of Heidi and Ed Savitt. They got married this past summer and never thought that anything could shake up their relationship. They met in 2011 at the Newcastle University in London.
Ed moved into the student housing that Heidi used to live in and they started dating immediately. From there it was nothing short of spectacular for six years. But when Ed finally met Heidi’s mother, something changed. Heidi’s mother suspected that there was something more to Ed than what meets the eye.
So Heidi’s mother trusted her hunch and began to dig into Ed’s past. She found an old photo that revealed some shocking information. The photo showed that there was much more to Ed’s story than both families realized.
During a dinner party, Heidi’s mother, Kay Parker, was discussing how much she loved sailing during the holidays with Ed’s mother Fiona Savitt. That is when Kay mentioned that Heidi had a cute holiday boyfriend named Ed when she was six-years-old. The two met in Turkey. When Fiona heard that the boy’s name was Ed, she dropped her wine glass.
After the dinner party, Kay couldn’t get that conversation out of her head. So when she got home, she went up to her attic and went through some holiday photos. She found a photo that would send a shockwave through both families.
Heidi had no recollection of the meeting until her mother mentioned the name Ed. So when Kay showed Heidi the photo, her eyes opened with great surprise! The boy who was standing next to her was the same Ed who she was married to.
Heidi never puts any faith into fate, but after seeing the photo, she now believed that she was destined to be with the man she married. Once Kay showed Heidi the photo, she sent it along with other holiday photos of the two to Fiona.
Kay believes that when Heidi and Ed met at the University years ago, there must have been some sort of subconscious realization that they had met earlier in life. Kay believes that their earlier connection could be what drew the two together. Heidi agrees with her mother and mentioned that the moment she and Ed met, they were inseparable. The two met when they were 6-years-old, and now they’re both 26-years-old and married. This goes to show that fate has a unique way of bringing people together, even if it’s 20 years later.
