When four seems like old age

Tonight, Supergirl asked me how old Elijah would be right now.
You know.... If he was still alive.

Four and a half years old, I answered.

And then I gulped.

Some tears were shed.



I am really missing him right now.

I just stumbled upon your blog, and I'm already addicted. You seem incredibly strong!

If it's ok, may I ask how your son, Elijah, died? I have read about how your son was very small for his age, but I don't see what he was diagnosed with, or how he died?

My baby is 9 months old, but looks like he is 5 months old. He didn't gain a single pound until he was 6 months old. I have taken him to several doctors and they all say there is nothing wrong.
