Owen Gabriel

Owen Gabriel was born Saturday.  Gabriel was given in acknowledgement to the angels who saw this sweet little man through a healthy birth.

He is nothing short of perfect and to see his dad holding him on Father’s Day, beaming and fighting back tears of joy and relief, washed us in a wave of happiness. His parents have long wanted a baby and after many years of sorrow and tragedy, Owen’s birth brings a new beginning to their beautiful family.

I can’t help but feel renewed with optimism. Life truly is good. Sometimes we just need a gorgeous, tiny hand with even tinier fingers wrapped around it to remind us of the hope we have before us.
