Truly A Miracle!

By Ralph & Allyson Kofler

On Christmas Eve, doctors told us the words that no family is ever prepared to hear: “This child has irreversible brain damage; he won’t see, hear, speak or learn; he will never be able to engage with the world; all that makes him who he is- is gone; you will need to make a quality of life decision over the next few days.”

That was the painful message we were given just 5 weeks ago about our grandson Daniel.  Within a few hours, there were prayer warriors praying for Daniel’s full recovery in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.  Within a few days, there were people praying for him in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and Australia. Daniel soon showed doctors that he could breathe on his own without the ventilator.  Then he showed them that he remembered how to suck and how to swallow- so out came the feeding tube!

Daniel was discharged from the hospital after 3 weeks. He smiles.  He coos. He responds to sounds. He is able to see with his left eye, and his right eye is expected to improve.  Daniel’s recovery is truly a miracle.  The Bridge family has walked with us on the journey and we are so grateful for your prayers and your love.  To God be the glory!
