In roughly 1924-1925 a premature six-month-old baby was born, but given no chance at survival by the attending physician.

Her efforts paid off - the baby survived.

I watch Leif grow up and I wonder about everything his brother would have been.
"Yes, love. Baby. Liam."
"Mommy, baby dodo?"
"Yes, my darling. Baby dodo."
