I need to find a good book about older kids that were born premature.  All of the books I'm getting on my searches are for premature babies, but I want an "aftermath" sort of book.  Ya know, he's not a baby anymore, and I want to know if some of his behaviors are consistant with other kids who were also born too early.  Any ideas????

I really haven't found any in my search.  You are right that most of them deal w/ the baby aspect or maybe the first 3 years.  I have had 5 preemies, now ages 8 - 15, let me know if I can help you in anyway.  My kids were born at 35, 30 and 25 weeks
