"Another quite significant aspect of this body of work lies in the demonstration of the deep cultural and social changes which occurred in American life over the past century. Both race and sexuality are the themes which cannot be overlooked in this amazing series; not incidentally, Schwartz portrayed a cross-section of the “New American Nuclear Family”, including same-sex couples, mixed-race couples and single parents. Each caption of the photos consists of the first names of the parents and the particular period of time left before the anticipated birth of the child or it shows how long it has been since the child, or children, have left home." - Bob Lansroth, January 2016
