Mother and child's revival a Christmas miracle?

Sometimes doctors take a back seat to Divine Intervention. The father of the baby was holding his wife's hand when she was declared dead. His son was delivered by Cesarean Section, also appearing lifeless. His reaction was:
"My legs went out from underneath me," he recalled Tuesday.  "I had everything in the world taken from me, and in an hour and a half I had everything given to me."
Dr. Stephanie Martin, a maternal fetal medicine specialist who was called in for the ordeal at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs, said that Tracy's malady, and her recovery, were both mysteries.  "We did a thorough evaluation and can't find anything that explains why this happened," she said.
"[Tracy] had no signs of life. No heartbeat, no blood pressure, she wasn't breathing," said Martin. "The baby was, it was basically limp, with a very slow heart rate."

Beautiful, heartwarming story! Thank you for sharing!

Miracles still happen EVERYDAY, we just stop seeing them or explain them away.

But the miracle in this story, well, there is no other possible explanation.

As the article reads:

While medical science was left without an explanation, Mr. Hermanstorfer credited "the hand of God" for making a miracle of a near tragedy.

"We are both believers ... but this right here, even a nonbeliever - you explain to me how this happened. There is no other explanation," he said.
