    A Special Story of Love

    Like any good mother, when Karen found
    out that another baby was on
    the way, she did what she could to help her
    3-year-old son, Michael,
    prepare for a new sibling. They found out
    that the new baby was going be
    a girl, and day after day, night
    after night, Michael sang to
    his sister in Mommy's tummy. He was
    building a bond of love
    with his little sister before he even met
    her.



    The pregnancy progressed normally for
    Karen. In time, the labor
    pains came. Soon it was every five
    minutes, every three, every
    minute. But serious complications arose
    during delivery and Karen
    found herself in hours of labor. Would a
    C-section be required?



    Finally, after a long struggle, Michael's
    little sister was born. But she
    was in very serious condition. With a
    siren howling in the night,
    the ambulance rushed the infant to the
    neonatal intensive care unit at
    Mary's Hospital, Knoxville , Tennessee .



    The days inched by. The
    little girl got worse. The pediatrician had
    to tell the parents there is
    very little hope. Be prepared for the worst.
    Karen and her husband
    contacted a local cemetery about a burial
    plot. They had fixed up a
    special room in their house for
    their new baby but now they
    found themselves having to plan for a
    funeral.



    Michael, however, kept begging his parents
    to let him see his
    sister. "I want to sing to her", he kept
    saying. Week two in intensive
    care looked as if a funeral would come
    before the week was over. Michael
    kept nagging about singing to his
    sister, but kids are never
    allowed in Intensive Care. Karen decided
    to take Michael whether they
    liked it or not. If he didn't see his sister
    right then, he may never see
    her alive.



    She dressed him in an oversized scrub
    suit and marched him into ICU.
    He looked like a walking laundry basket.
    The head nurse recognized
    him as a child and bellowed, "Get
    that kid out of here now.
    No children are allowed." The mother
    rose up strong in
    Karen, and the usually mild-mannered
    lady glared steel-eyed
    right into the head nurse's face, her lips
    a firm line, "He is not
    leaving until he sings to his sister" she
    stated. Then Karen towed
    Michael to his sister's bedside.



    He gazed at the tiny infant losing the battle
    to live. After a
    moment, he began to sing. In the
    pure-hearted voice of a 3-year-old,
    Michael sang: "You are my sunshine, my only
    sunshine, you make me happy
    when skies are gray." Instantly the baby
    girl seemed to respond. The
    pulses rate began to calm down and become
    steady. "Keep on singing,
    Michael," encouraged Karen with tears in
    her eyes. "You never
    know, dear, how much I love you, please don't
    take my sunshine away."



    As Michael sang to his sister, the
    baby's ragged, strained
    breathing became as smooth as a kitten's
    purr. "Keep on singing,
    sweetheart."



    "The other night, dear, as I lay
    sleeping, I dreamed I held you
    in my arms".



    Michael's little sister began to relax as
    rest, healing rest, seemed
    to sweep over her.



    "Keep on singing, Michael." Tears
    had now conquered the face
    of the bossy head nurse. Karen
    glowed. "You are my sunshine, my only
    sunshine. Please don't take my sunshine
    away..."



    The next, day...the very next day...the
    little girl was well enough to go home.



    Woman's Day Magazine called it The
    Miracle of a Brother's Song. The medical
    staff just called it a miracle. Karen
    called it a miracle of God's love.


    NEVER GIVE UP ON THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE. LOVE IS
    SO INCREDIBLY POWERFUL.
