KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Once the center of an Amber Alert, five-year-old Porter Stone returned home for the second time following a heart transplant in St. Louis.
His mother, too exhausted to talk on camera, waved to cameras during their arrival. Stone's grandfather, Matthew Fife, said the family's prayers were answered.
"It's almost like a dream," he said. "He's a walking miracle. Even though I'm tired inside, I'm ecstatic."
Stone's family said the surgery went well and that the family is now concentrating on his recovery.
