"God gave us Gabe twice"

New Berlin

I had the opportunity to meet a lucky little boy several weeks back. As I drove to his parents' New Berlin home, all I knew was he suffered a brain injury back in September during a car-verse-bike accident. Walking into these types of situations with little to no details, you never know quite what to expect. 

As it turns out, Gabe is doing better than any of his doctors could have predicted. Surrounded by a loving family and several friends, he's made an almost complete recovery. One of his favorite things to do is play cello.

With stories like these, the "back-up" photo is obviously Gabe practicing on his cello. However, as reporter John Schultz interviewed him, I made a couple less predictable pictures that might catch an extra eye or two. 

"God gave us Gabe twice and we are truly blessed," said Mary Kostuch, Gabe's mother.
