Hi, I am new to this group.  I have a 7 year old little boy that was born at 1lb. 15oz. with IUGR and failure to thrive.  We decided to put him on growth hormone at age 2.  He has since caught up and is in the 50th percentile for height. His weight is still pretty low for his age.  He was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 5.  He has impulse control and low self esteem.  Any other moms out there with aging preemies?  I would love to get your input and hear your stories.  I need some words of wisdom.  It is hard being a single mom of an aging IUGR / Preemie and all the issues that come along with it.  Kelly
