Harpo & One More
Harpo and Susan Marx were dining with their good
friends, Gracie Allen and George Burns. Suddenly there was a phone
call from a Mrs Walwrath, who had assisted in the adoption of both Gracie
and George's children. Mrs Walwrath had a completely unexpected surprise
waiting for the arms and love of her new parents - a beautiful four week
Gracie and George had not asked for another child,
nor were they ready to accept the added responsibility. But Harpo
and Susan Marx were dining with them, and they did want another
child. They were thrilled! The little girl was adopted by the
Marx's. She was the perfect compliment and completion to their
family of of four adopted children - 2 boys and 2 girls - Billy, Alex,
Jimmy and Minnie - all wanted, all loved.
Harpo once said, "We want to have one kid for
every window we have in the house so that, when we leave, we can look back
and see one of our kids in every window waving to us."
