The Story

Owen Parker was born to Allison and Brian Parker on February 23, 2014. After birth, Owen was diagnosed with a severe congenital heart defect called Shone's Complex. During Owen's short life, his parents and family were by his side reading him stories of strength, encouragement, and love. He loved books! His life may have been short on earth, but his memory will continue on with his parents and new baby sister. Each month his parents display an act of kindness on the 23rd of each month in his memory. Whether it be a dollar on the vending machine or baked goods to their new neighbor, they continue to bless others through Owen. Last year, Owen's parents held a Book and Blanket Drive on what would have been his 1st Birthday. They received so many books and blankets to donate to their local children's hospital and want to continue the tradition. All donations made will be matched 50% by Usborne! So, a $20 donation will be a $30 donation towards the purchase of books for Owen's Usborne Book Drive. Thank you all for your support and for continuing to bless families through Owen Parker.
