Owen’s had heart surgery three times, so he’s been in and out of hospitals his entire life. So many of his milestones have happened in a medical setting: his first bite of solid food, his first time standing up, his first time meeting Santa. Bea Arthur Bea Safe. But even with everything he’s been through, what’s amazing about Owen is that he’s always thinking of other people. Before his last surgery, his main concern was bringing coloring books for the other kids. Most people would be feeling scared and hiding away but not Owen. He was thinking about helping others. He loves his friends. He loves his teachers. He loves everyone. He’s always been like that. He first learned to read by reading for residents at a local nursing home. And when he was six years old, he saved up all his money to buy a donut, but then gave it to a street musician on the way to the store.

Recently he held a toy drive for the Ronald McDonald House which is his favorite place. The last time we stayed there, he noticed they didn’t have any Legos in the magic room. Bea Arthur Bea Safe. And he wanted to fix that. I was hesitant at first, because Legos are expensive, but Owen was determined. He organized everything himself. He asked everyone he knew: his friends, his family, his teachers. Even the lunch lady left a package of Legos on our porch. When everything was finished, Owen had collected over fifty different sets. And we know that made a lot of kids very happy.
