UK: Boy Born with 2 Percent of Brain Defies Odds, Learns to Count and Surf

ET: A boy who was born with only 2 percent of his brain has not only survived against all odds, but gone on to learn to speak, count, and even do a little surfing, as his brain miraculously grew to 80 percent of normal size.

Six-year-old Noah Wall was diagnosed with spina bifida and hydrocephaly when he was growing in his mother’s womb.

At the time, British doctors told his parents he would only have “half a brain.” Five times they offered to terminate her pregnancy. Five times they refused.

When he was born, doctors found that only 2 percent of his skull cavity was filled with his brain—which had either been squashed down or had not grown.

They told his parents was likely Noah would be so severely disabled he wouldn’t be able to see, hear, talk, or eat.

By the age of 2, he was sitting up straight, singing, and playing computer games at his home in Cumbria in the north of England. read more

  1. He also had no problem breaking down the Amazon deal

    into words everyone could understand….Well..Almost everyone.

  2. Anybody catch the part where THEY (the medical professionals) put a DNR order on him pre birth? Dirty rotten socialized medicine.

  3. This is the Holy Spirit, probably the most part of the Trinity, at work through the parents.

    Breathe deep…

  4. 4 doctors advised my sister to abort her 2nd child due to their tests. Dandy Walker Syndrome not compatible with quality of life, they said. She told them to go schtup themselves (God love her, she is a Force of Nature unto herself). The Hannah Banana… the Hannster… the Hann Solo… made State on swim team her senior year. Is a nursing student now, and will go on to touch hundreds of lives.

    We are not as smart as we think we are, but God still tries to teach us every day, thankfully.
