Just days after diagnosis a letter written by Owen’s Great Grandfather was given to us as parents. A significant part of the letter read;
There is an old saying, ‘behind every dark cloud, there is a silver lining’, It may seem early days to talk of ‘silver linings’ when all seems dark and gloomy, however, God calls us to have faith in him. Little Owen, your little boy, may be God’s means of calling us to new heights of love for him and for each other”
Looking back and reading these words from my Pop, I can truly relate now.
At the beginning it was so hard to look through to that silver lining and it seemed unimaginable how life could go on. But I truly believe Owen is our little man for a reason and he has touched so many lives and made each and every one of us better people. He really has taught us about not taking things for granted, cherishing every moment and unconditional love for both him and those around us.
If you would like to leave us a message – whether it be for us or Owen, we promise we will read all the messages for him.
We thank you for all your encouragement, support and love XOXO
