Abstract:

The baby was blind, severely retarded and had cerebral palsy when May adopted him and patiently cared for him. At 16, he could not feed himself, stand alone or speak, yet she never gave up hope. Then the unexplained happened. One day she found him at the piano, picking out familiar tunes. It was thus that his rare musical talent was discovered. The medical term for Leslie's condition is 'idiot-savant.' Somewhere in his brain exists a spark of brilliance for musical structures and for rhythm and tone. He plays the piano with vigorous emotion and imitates singers from the past with uncanny clarity. May feels that what happened was a miracle, in answer to her prayers. There is much that remains unexplained in Leslie's remarkable achievement. But certainly May's steadfast mothering contributed to the development of his unusual potential.
