Three months ago, 12-year-old Dieuphete was in a Haitian village when a gasoline-fueled cooking fire ignited his nylon shirt.
Lydia Minnor kept watch over her son, Dieuphete Celime, as he recovered in a patient room at Shriner's Hospital for Children in Boston.
He was brought to Shriners Hospital where a team of doctors was attempting to give him a new life and a functioning face.
Dieuphete came with his mother, Lydia, on Monday evening. It was the first time either had left Haiti.
Team surgeons Rob Sheridan, left, and Philip Chang reviewed the treatment plan with Lydia in her son's patient room.
Doctors said his wounds will be closed and he will be able to eat properly and work to support himself and his family.
