Morton-Lill, Benjamin
11/2/2003

Benjamin is the twin brother of Case Morton-Lill and son of Lori Morton and Susan Lill.  During her 5th month, Lori learned Benjamin had Trisomy 18, a rare genetic disorder, and was not expected to live for long after birth.  In fact, the risk was to Case because if Benjamin were to pass away too early, Case would be at risk of infection or death.  Benjamin made it to 8 months before his fragile heart stopped beating.  Both boys were delivered two days later.  Lori, Susan, Case, and loved ones remember Benjamin on November 2nd and celebrate Case’s birth on November 4th, a bitter sweet time.  “One born into our hands.  One born into our hearts.”
