Premature Babies. An assignment in Empathy.

December 14, 2018 at 9:34 pm | Posted in Grief | 8 Comments

My son Fletcher was given a school assignment to create a project that focused on empathy and raised awareness about an issue.

Since his brother Jake was born prematurely (14 weeks early) and died at two weeks old,  he focused on premature birth. He decided to make this comic. It is dedicated to Jake and all the other beautiful babies who are born before their time.

  7. I love this comic! Both in drawing and “editorial”. I hope he continues to do more. He managed to get a serious message across at the same time he injected just a bit of levity!
