I doubt anyone else recognizes the significance of this day. My husband won’t. Heck, he doesn’t even remember the name of the condition that killed our son. So I doubt he would realize why November 20, 2014 is a significant day to me.
Today is the day that Liam: Nolan’s baby brother, best buddy, partner in crime became older than him. Nolan’s little brother who was born nearly two years after him is now older than he ever will be.
Nolan is frozen in time at the age of thirteen. He died nine days after his birthday. We don’t know what time because it happened during his sleep. We just know that he was gone when we went to wake him.
Liam turned thirteen nine days ago.
He has now lived longer than Nolan.
Nolan will be forever thirteen while Liam grows and experiences life. Liam will get to do all the things that Nolan never will.
