Owen Danyo celebrates his third birthday quietly at home
Our "miracle baby" Owen is three! Reetie and Bob celebrated quietly at home with just the immediate family.
Three years ago we were all in shock. I remember the numb feeling, staying at Reetie's house with the kids while waiting for the results of the MRI and EEG. Here we are once more. Life has been good and uneventful, now here we are again in a life and death struggle, in pain and fear and waiting. Life turns on a dime.
Owen is a pistol. I watch him every Tuesday. He's a rough and tumble kid. Has the most beautiful smile. But that's true of all of Reetie and Bob's kids. They're a way cool family.
Deo gratias, Deo gratias, Deo gratias! Amazing grace, how fruitful and how sound, You saved and set us free. We once were lost, but now are found, were blind but now we see.
