I agree, but I'd say even at the age of ten, he's already a better man than many out there.

Elijah's resilency speaks to the nurturing of his mother and step-father. A firm foundation will now need constant bolstering. And it reads as though his father and step-mother realize how blessed they are to now be passed the torch. May you all be surrounded with love.

Elijah ... you are a true hero. I am sorry you mom did not make it ... but because of your quick thinking and ability to follow instructions, your sister is alive and that is something you can be proud of. I am sure in whatever you decide to be when you grow up you will be great at it.

God bless you and your family!

This young man has a purpose for being on this earth. As the story reads we can already see some of it, but I feel there so much, much more to come. Elijah, God bless you and you family. Also, it is so great to see that his mother and father was apart, this appear to be a health family where the children are put first. God bless this family, and Elijah many, many blessings.

Macktrapper, you are so right!Elijah exhibits wonderful qualities and thoughts as such a young age. I love his cute face and I hope the new surroundings will help him to achieve his wishes. I hope something good comes out of this senseless tragedy.

what a brave little boy, I don't know if I would be able to do what he did. I hope the animals who did this to his family fry.

Elijah,
You done the very best you could for your mother. Your efforts kept her alive long enough for her to reach the hospital were the doctors could safey bring your sister into the world. As hard as it is to deal with the loss of your mother, rest assured that your actions prolonged her life and saved the life of your sister. Had it not been for you, your sister would not have been born. May God bless you and may the future be yours to command.
