5/10/92 (Day 176) — Preemies at Home, day 43

May 10, 2011

This is our wonderful friend Brad Silverman, who came to visit this day. He's the same age as Kenn's son Ian, and was 13 in this picture. I was Brad's first babysitter. It is unbelievable to me that this boy is now a father of three young children of his own. How did that happen?
