Worth Watching

This was one of those after school specials that aired in the 80's. What makes it worth watching is that it is based on the true story of May, Joe and Leslie Lemke. Leslie was born severely brain damaged and handicapped and his eyes had to be surgically removed. Expected to die, May and her husband Joe and May's firm belief in Christ Jesus took the frail infant in and through prayer and devoted care they kept him alive. Years of seemingly no improvement, though May would tell you otherwise if she were still alive today, May and Joe didn't give up. What resulted was a miracle of God that medical and scientific communities, though labeling it "savant" still scratch their heads about.
