Sandra Grossi de Almeida, mother of the boy Enzo, is one of two Brazilian women certified by the Vatican as divinely inspired miracles justifying the sainthood. She had a uterine malformation that should have made it impossible for her to carry a child for more than four months, but after taking the pills, she gave birth to Enzo.(AP Photo/Silvia Izquierdo)
