On May 15, 2013 at 12:41am a 5lb 13oz miracle entered this world. At just 19 1/2 inches long he was small but oh he is mighty. Owen was born with Truncus Arteriosus Type II, TAPVR, neuroblastoma, 22q11 microduplication, and developed pulmonary vein stenosis. He had his 1st open heart surgery on May 16, 2013 and his 2nd surgery on July 22, 2013. Owen fought like a mighty Lion and moved mountains from his tiny room at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Owen gained the most beautiful pair of angel wings on September 4, 2013. Please follow our journey and learn how our tiny miracle has changed lives and continues to inspire people all around the world.
Big Brother, Jaxon thinks he is the King of the house! He is going to be such a good brother. He is GREAT with kids and we know that he and Brody will be best buds! We believe Owen is around us everywhere and pulls Jaxon’s tail often while he is sleeping. Jaxon always visits the boys room whenever he gets a treat just to show off a bit!
We were blessed with our heart healthy rainbow baby, Brody Aaron, on August 5, 2014. He is wrapping the “O” shaped hole in our heart with a “B” shaped joy! We are beyond blessed with his big personality and beautiful smile.
Jeff and Alissa were married May 12, 2012. They are best friends and phenomenal teammates. He is in finance and she is an Escrow Officer. They always knew they wanted to start a family and are so excited and blessed to get to be their boy’s parents! They vow to never give up fighting congenital heart defects and carrying on Owen’s Legacy.
