How fortunate the family that receives this little "saint"! The miraculous is going to follow this child, along with a very powerful, influential and persuasive gaurdian angel!

It's going to be a miraculously wonderful rollercoastal ride!

Matt- your excellent writing skills warrant a follow up article on the rest of the story (see commenters' posts above re: this young priest's dad and his sacrifice for his own Down's Syndrome son).
