Things didn’t get much better. By the time Noah was born, the condition had destroyed 98 percent of his brain. He also had spinal bifida, a birth defect affecting the spine. But the story of this miracle boy born with virtually no brain function is an example of why faith is so important!
The fact that Noah survived birth already defied odds. But with only 2 percent brain function, doctors didn’t have very high expectations for the boy. But God was at work. Not only did Noah continue to survive, but as he grew his brain continued to develop — something doctors didn’t think possible.
By two years old, Noah’s abilities stunned everyone. He could sing, sit up straight and even play games on the computer. And his amazing progress just continued.
A Continued Miracle
Now four years old, Noah can talk, trace the letters of his name and count to ten. He even attends school one day a week. In fact, his recovery is so incredible his story is featured in a BBC documentary called ‘The Boy With No Brain.’
“I was planning his funeral while I was pregnant – I could never have imagined this incredible day would come,” Shelly said.
Because of his spinal bifida, Noah is confined to a wheelchair and has a few other related health issues. But as for his brain, he’s astonished doctors by making nearly a full recovery. Scans show that over the last four years, Noah has gone from having only 2 percent brain tissue to 80 percent!
As for Noah’s parents, they are worrying less about what doctors say Noah will never do.
“Noah will show us exactly what he’s capable of and just what he wants to do in life,” his mom said. “He’s so determined and we’re so proud.”
This little miracle is exactly the reason why faith is so important. What man said was impossible, God made possible!
