Life Journey

This piece was conceived, if you will, to represent the emotional journey of bringing a child into the world 3 months premature. From the initial possibility of losing both wife and fetus, through the 3 months visiting the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at Boston's Brigham & Women's Hospital where we learned to hold a child whose head was smaller than a peach, this was a truly extraordinary time. While he was due on December 7 (Pearl Harbor Day) he was born on September 11, 2002- a year after the World Trade Center Attacks. He started out with, and has continued to exhibit, a very strong mind of his own.
