While we were interviewing Jessica the other day, her mother asked me when we introduced our son to his sister? I could not come up with a definitive answer. She has always been present in our home. He has always visited his sister’s resting place since he was born. So, in answer to when they first met, I would have to say that they have always known about each other, maybe even crossed paths coming and going. Who is to know? One thing is for sure. He often speaks of her. In our home, in public, to friends, his young mind is not familiar with the fear or awkward value of sharing a deceased sibling. He wants people to know about her. He wants people to understand that he is not well with the situation but that he presses on. He wants people to know that she as real as the sunrise and is thinking of him as he is thinking of her. If only we could understand life as clearly as an 8 year old boy.
