Last year my mother found our she was pregnant. Being a first child with a brother that I fight with constantly this was a big shock. I was 14 and I never expected a new addition to the family. After time wore away the shock I became excited. I even went to the doctor with my mom and found out that it was a boy. We were to name it Eli Christor, after my dad. During her sixth month she became concerned so she went to the doctor. That day is a day that I'll never forget. My dad came to school to pick me up and I could tell that something was wrong. He said the baby was still born. All I remember was falling to the floor in the school and crying as hard as I possibly could. By the sixth month of her pregnancy you don't really expect that to happen. Well she went and had the baby the next day. I didn't see him but my mom did. She said he was perfect in every way, except he wasn't alive. We had a small grave site service. The casket was so tiny. Still to this day I remember how that one day changed my life. I wonder what I or any other member of my family did to deserve this. I supppose it was just an act of God. I know though that my whole family will one day be reunited with our little rosebud.
