Shortly before Christmas two years ago, our younger son was involved in an automobile accident. It occurred some thirty miles from our home during a heavy rainstorm in the mountains. The first my husband and I knew of it was through a call from the hospital to which the boy was taken. As we drove to the hospital, we prayed, trying hard to overcome fear.

The picture presented to us by the authorities at the hospital was not encouraging. They wanted our permission to operate immediately, and they feared for our son's life. They gave him less than a fifty-fifty chance for survival, even with surgery, and then expressed the thought that he might suffer permanent damage if he did survive.
