Here are some gains that Ken has had since umbilical cord blood stem cells (this is done after the baby is born, no babies were aborted)
1.) Ken is now able to read at the beginner level
2.) More cognition
3.) More abstract thinking
4.) Talks about past events/people who have died (his grandmother died when he was four--this was over four years ago and he talks about her all the time now...
5.) Prays to God to help him when he is out of control (he does this ALL BY HIMSELF--Ken to Caroline, "SHUT UP, CAROLINE!!!!!" Then Ken, under his breath, "Dear Jesus, help me not to say 'shut up' anymore. Thank you. Amen."
6.) Knows birthdays, what day of the week it is, what date it is, what time it is, and how long it will be until something is open or closes (like the water park or mall)
7.) Better sentence structure
8.) Clearer speech
9.) Can do math problems/addition, can write simple sentences
There may be more, I have to think about it. But, I would say that is enough, really.
