         An eight-year-old child heard her parents talking about her little brother. All she knew was that he was very sick and they had no money. Only a very expensive operation could save him now and there was no one to lend them the money.

         When she heard her daddy say to her tearful mother, “Only a miracle can save him now,” the little girl went to her bedroom and pulled her money from its hiding place and counted it carefully.

         She hurried to a drugstore ( 藥店 ) with the money in her hand.

         “And what do you want?” asked the salesman. “It's for my little brother,” the girl answered. “He's really, really sick and I want to buy a miracle.”       “Pardon?” said the salesman.

          “My brother Andrew has something bad growing in-side his head and my daddy says only a miracle can save him. So how much does a miracle cost?” “We don't sell a miracle here, child. I'm sorry,” the salesman said with a smile.

         “Listen, if it isn't enough, I can try and get some more. Just tell me how much it costs.”

          A well-dressed man heard it and asked, “What kind of a miracle does your brother need?”

         “I don't know,” she answered with her eyes full of tears. “He's really sick and mum says he needs an opera-tion. But my daddy can't pay for it, so I have brought all my money.”

         “How much do you have?” asked the man. “$ 1.11, but I can try and get some more,” she answered.

         “Well, what luck,” smiled the man. “$ 1.11, the price of a miracle for little brothers.”

          He took up the girl's hand and said, “Take me to where you live. I want to see your brother and meet your parents. Let's see if I have the kind of miracle you need.”

          That well-dressed man was Dr Carlton Armstrong, a famous doctor. The operation was successful and it wasn't long before Andrew was home again.

          How much did the miracle cost?
