From the Author:

Imagine that you are the parent of a newborn weighing one-and-a-half pounds. Now imagine that it is 1922. You have just moved - from a city with some conveniences to a farm with no electricity or running water.

This work of fiction is based on actual events. The mother in the story was my Lithuanian grandmother. My uncle and aunt, who grew up in the 1920s, served as advisers for me. We like to say that this is the story that "might have happened."  I wrote it so that most members of a family would be able to read it. It is suitable for ages 10 and up.

Though the Author's Notes which follow the story were intended primarily for my family, I have received numerous favorable comments from other readers who have appreciated the additional information supplied about the family history, characters, ethnic traditions, setting, and medical aspects of the story. Educators may also find these notes useful.
