Well-educated and intelligent, these basically decent and moral people find their lives shattered when their third child and first son is born with hydrocephalus -- water on the brain. Bravely, the parents are determined that baby Jason (whose name means one who heals) be given every opportunity for normalcy even though the doctors have predicted only a two-percent chance for survival beyond the age of ten.

Almost too fearful to hope, the parents sign permission for surgery and a shunt is inserted into the babys skull to drain off the excess fluids. The rest of the story traces Jasons development, going from hospital to nursing home to finally live with his family. It ends with Jason entering kindergarten, a true miracle, given the original prognosis.
