(WHDH/NBC) - Before Owen Sheridan was born, his mother was told he wasn't going to survive.
Four weeks ago he was born, albeit with a 7-pound growth on his head.
The growth, called anencephaly, was actually a portion of his brain that had grown outside of his skull.
Doctors said they were unable to perform the necessary life saving surgery.
Owen's parents, Jen and Kevin Sheridan, were forced to call several hospitals before they found a surgeon at Boston Children's Hospital willing to perform the surgery.
"They worked a miracle on our child. They did what no other hospital that we could contact was willing to do," Kevin said.
Owen was in surgery for seven hours, but afterward, his parents were able to hold him for the very first time.
