Helen Keller was eighteen-months-old and extremely bright when, "An acute congestion of the stomach and brain," like a ruthless thief, stole her sight, hearing and speech and left Helen locked in a dark, soundless prison. She would need a miracle to thrive.
While this story certainly is about a miracle, this particular miracle didn't just happen. It involved a series of fortunate events; the combination of Helen's high intelligence, the imprinting that took place before her illness, her parents' wealth to seek and pursue help, and the blessed arrival of her teacher, Anne Sullivan - The Miracle Worker!
