A photo of two children about 4 years old. It was taken near Uman, Ukraine c. 1925. I would very much appreciate a translation. Thank you.

10/11/2017 1:21 AM It's the same difficult handwriting as on vm4555 - and parts are torn out, so this too is a bit of guesswork.

The third word from the right is the same name as what I assumed to be the husband's on vm4555. Could be "Koliyeh" or "Koleh's" (i.e. Koliya, short for Nikolai)

"-- is Koleh's[?] son with our[? or Reizi?] little girl Koliyeh ---- ---- son in Omen [i.e. Uman]"
10/18/2020 9:44 PM The parent's name could also be Keyle -- a female name.
10/19/2020 1:54 AM Another attempt:
First two lines:
ד[אס] איז קעילעס אינגל מיט
רייזיס קליין מיידל קוליעא

This is Keyle's little boy with Reizi's little girl Kolya [Kolye?]

The rest could be a description of where this was taken - but that's guessing since I can make out a possible Uman אמען in the third line and just maybe the words "not long" in the end.

Note that the first syllable of the boy's mother's name is distinctly different from the one in the little girls' name. The latter is definitly a Ko.
