He cried most of the time, andthrashed about as if in great pain. He wasn't learning how to crawl,talk, or interact normally. His parents sought medical help and weretold at first not to worry so much. Later, the professionals recommended counseling to help the parents accept reality. Nothing could help their son, and the quality of their own lives was at risk.
Refusal to accept that advice launched an improbable journey that changed their lives forever.
