I don't doubt Dan's story and his belief, but I believe there are over 1 million people with aphasia in the USA alone. Many will share the same faith as Dan, but there's no miracle for them.
People with aphasia need therapy, and lots of it.

We don't know why God healed Dan, yet healed others, but through this miracle, God gets the glory. Many will hear of this wondrous work of the Lord & believe in Him, also.

Miracles do happen and I believe in them. When I read this story I knew that it was a true miracle. My son was born and given no chance to live and yet today he is 35 years old. I just saw the story of the Mom and baby who came back to life after she had a surgical birth. Oh yes there are miracles all around us and you are one of them. God bless you and your family always

My husband Tom had a very severe stroke on December 3, 2007. He spent 28 days in the hospital, He stopped breathing at one point and spent 7 days in intensive care. He spent 1 1/2 months in s rehab facility. This was a terrible mistake. One day we literally went home and got Tom's wheelchair and loads of blankets and warm clothing and pushed Tom home without the rehabs help. Two nurses were fighting at that time as to who was going to get his discharge papers. When one slammed the medice chest drawer and all medication flew ontoi the floor we were more than convinved we had made a serious mistake when we had Tom in there. We followed up with home care and for the most part that was not beneficial. I wish with all my heart that I had the time to be a stroke victims advocate. But I am Tom's only care giver 24 hours a day seven days a week. I am not well and am 83 years old and I know for certain that the reason that i have been able to take care of Tom is because of MY FAITH. I pray MY GOD, YES HE IS MY 0OD, will continue to be with me in taking care of Tom. I am proud that my grandson David e-mailed this article. It tells one a lot of the wonderful family that Tom and I have. GOD BLESS TO ALL, Apollonia

Hi, I'm Terry's wife and i'm dealing with a lot of stressors following my husband's stroke 3 1/2 years ago. Terry can say a few words and can write maybe the first letter or two of what he is trying to say. I often lose my temper because it is a 24 hr game of cherades and I work a lot and come home very tired. I'm dealting with a lot of guilt and am beginning to hold serious grudges against his children (not my kids) because I know they have to make time to work him into their schedules a few times a year for Christmas and fathers day. He knows they spend a lot of time with their mother and not him. He knows this and it hurts him so bad. Do you have any suggestions or words of encouragement.

There are many resources available for alternative forms of communication that could help Terry. Depending on his understanding of language and his abilities to recognize and understand letters, he may be able to communicate with som eof the keyboard type devices. If you are interested, I can give you some websites with various communication tools.
God Bless,
