“He began calling me Mommy. He did it on his own. My son and him are like brothers. He protects Jaheem. They are all I have,” she said.

Jaheem’s birthday — he turned 6 on June 5 — marked 12 months of surgeries, rehab and a healing scar across his head that reminds her of the titanium plate doctors placed on his little skull.

“I lost count on the number of surgeries he’s been through. He had his last one just last week. He has to learn how to walk, how to talk, how to eat. He forgets he has a right arm,” she said gesturing at the visible scar.

“His right side was paralyzed. He had a titanium plate put in. And he has seizures. I call him my little Iron Man because of the plate on his head.”

Jaheem giggled at the nickname. “I love Iron Man,” he said.

Holmes said planning for Jaheem’s birthday took her back to that tragic day when he nearly lost his life.

She remembers Jaheem and his dad going for a walk outside his Morrisania apartment in the Bronx when a heartless gunman fired at a rival. The fateful bullet pierced Jaheem’s tiny skull.Holmes knew she had seconds to act.

Sometimes miracles do happen, and that is what happened to 5 - year - old with Gahima hunter, who is recovering after two months ago he was shot in the head . June evening Djahim just finished celebrating and went with his father from the house on Washington Avenue in the Bronx , new York

VALHALLA, N.Y.— Jaheem Hunter was celebrating his birthday on June 5, when he was shot in in the head while walking to his party. The suspect Michael Quiles walked up to the 5 - year - old 's father, Charles, and apologized.

“I just remember a lot of blood. I drove him frantically to the hospital. It was a mother’s instinct. I felt like God was guiding me,” she recalled.

“If I had waited for the ambulance he would had died. He stopped breathing as soon as we got to the hospital. The doctors told me he had taken his last breath. They saved his life.”

Doctors placed Jaheem in a medically induced coma at New York-Presbyterian Hospital Columbia for months. She felt devastated seeing the scrawny boy breathing with the aid of a ventilator.

“He’s my miracle boy, my little superhero,” she said with a smile. “He’s been through a lot. He can be in a lot of pain. But he’ll say, ‘No, I’m OK, because he doesn’t want to go the hospital. He’s traumatized.”

Despite his impressive progress, the boy faces a long recovery ahead, she said.

“He’s going to have to have a lot of therapy. He’s not the same boy he was before,” she said. “But he knows I’m here for him.”

Holmes also wants to protect other children like Jaheem from gun-toting criminals like the man who shot him. She wants to make sure the accused triggerman, Michael Quiles, 27, stays in jail. He was arrested a day after the shooting and faces attempted murder, assault and gun possession charges.

“I don’t want to talk about him in front of Jaheem. It’s too much for him. But I will keep an eye on his case,” she whispered as Jaheem played with a Leap Frog game on the living room floor.

For now, Holmes and Jaheem will forge ahead. Holmes said aside from celebrating Jaheem’s impressive year of recovery, she hopes the boy’s birthday celebration will bring change to the city’s rampant gun culture.

“There’s a lot of gun violence going on in America. Our children are dying. I’m from there, from where it happened. This needs to change,” she said. “We moved to Yonkers to get away from all of this. But we are coming back because we need to be there. This is not just for Jaheem. This is for the community.”
