ex machina

sometimes life is unspeakably cruel.

after attempting to have children for some time, including a miscarriage, a couple that kris and i know gave birth to a severely disabled baby girl last night.

today they learned that she will likely not live to see her first birthday.

i really don't have the capacity to come close to understanding what they must be going through. in one of life's horrendous ironies, the couple has dedicated their lives to serving the disabled and their families.

my heart goes out to them in what will undoubtably be the most difficult and trying year that any parent should endure.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
