A Christmas Miracle Story

"His life began in my hands," Hermanstorfer said. "That's a feeling like none other. Life actually began in the palm of my hands."

On Christmas Eve, a woman who was in labor and in the process of giving birth suddenly stopped breathing and her heart stopped. The doctors did an emergency C-section, but the child was born lifeless. The doctors and God however were not willing to give up just yet.

Inexplicably, after several minutes both the mother and child sprung to life.
"She literally stopped breathing and her heart stopped," her husband said. Pandemonium erupted as doctors and nurses tried to revive her with chest compressions and a breathing tube, but nothing worked.

"I was holding her hand when we realized she was gone," Hermanstorfer said. "My entire life just rolled out."

Doctors told him, "We're going to take your son out now. We have been unable to revive her and we're going to take your son out," he recalled.

After the Cesarean section, some of the team rushed his wife to the operating room while the others attended to Coltyn.

"They hand him to me, he's absolutely lifeless," Hermanstorfer said. The doctors went to work on Coltyn as Hermanstorfer held him, and soon he began to breath.

Both mother and son are doing fine.

Today, when good news seems to be as rare a commodity as gold on the moon, sometimes we need a little good news.
