Hard to believe it's been five years since the public was caught up in the dramatic births of the Morrison sextuplets -- five of whom died shortly after birth in June 2007 in Minneapolis. But the passage of time is readily apparent in images posted on the Morrison family blog of the one preemie who survived -- Sylas. He was born at less than 23 weeks gestation at a weight of 15 ounces.
Sunday's story about multiple births got me thinking about the Morrisons again. I swapped e-mails with Brianna Morrison, Sylas' mother, and she gave me permission to tell readers about her blog, littlegreenpastures.com. The Morrisons now live in Wisconsin, and Sylas has two siblings! Her blog is filled with the family's thoughts and emotions of the past five years.
