Like many young married couples, Santhosh and Susan Mathews were delighted when Susan became pregnant for the first time. But when they went in for a routine ultrasound they were devastated when the doctor told them their baby had serious birth defects and would probably be still born. But when one doctor after another suggested they should abort the baby, they were steadfast in their resolve to carry the baby to term.
Fifteen years later that baby, Philip Mathews, inspires parents faced with bearing a baby with birth defects that they will get through it and they may have a baby like Philip. Richard Winham talked to Philip, as well as Santhosh and Susan who told him they see Philip as a “miracle baby.”
