Gina Wiant wanted a large family. But, by her own admission, she didn’t do a very good job having babies. Her oldest child was born with his liver outside his stomach - outside his stomach! Her oldest daughter, adopted from a sister, is estranged. Her first natural born daughter, Emily, died. Her youngest daughter had respiratory distress syndrome and had a lung collapse moments after arriving at a children’s hospital. Doctors feel that was what caused her first daughter's death. All were born Caesarian.

“I never heard ‘look at the pretty baby’, that never happened to me,” reflected Wiant. “They were always being rushed off to somewhere to do something to save them.”

So, when her one daughter died at birth she adopted the community's sons and daughters and opened a daycare. She expanded the number of her children by becoming a key component of the Rye High School Booster Club, and has had a large family ever since.

Auntie Gina, as she is known to hundreds of children, is all about kids.
