"Miracle Child In Texas"

Colton Schoonover, 13, from Slaton, is quite the celebrity now that he has been selected as the number one miracle child in Texas, an honor that will take him to Washington D.C. to meet the President.

It's all part of the Children's Miracle Network Champions Across American Program which recognizes remarkable children who have overcome challenges. Colton survived a fireworks accident that severely damaged one eye. He was chosen from among 14 CMN hospitals in Texas to represent the Lone Star state in the final hour of that broadcast in June.

Colton says it's a dream come true.

"I'm excited because I've always wanted to go to the Capital and I've always wanted to go to Disneyland," said Colton.  

"They've been packed for about a week, both of them,"said Shanna Schoonover, Colton's mom.  

Disney world is the first stop next week when Colton goes.
