Odds were stacked against him and he was sent to Hopkins because it is the place where miracles could happen. Dr. Carson was consulted and was directly involved in a plan for my son’s medical treatment. I even had the privilege to meet him one day as I sat at my son's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit crib, praying for a miracle and hoping my son would have a normal, healthy life. He was compassionate and caring and could have talked with me all day. Once I knew he was involved, I realized that my son was in the most capable hands. Today, my son is a healthy, normal 11-year-old, thanks to Dr. Carson.
