Oliver and His Mother
The devotion of Oliver’s mother has been an inspiration these past few months. As you may remember, Oliver was born with Down Syndrome and a severe heart defect. After taking her son to several hospitals and asking if they could heal his heart, Oliver’s mother was repeatedly turned away. When she learned that LWB supporters had funded heart surgery for Oliver, she was so grateful that her precious boy had a chance for a healthy life.
Like other mothers whose children have special medical needs, Oliver’s mom fought for him. She was his advocate when he had no other hope. Her unabashed pride and joy in her precious son shines through in each and every photo.
Oliver’s heart surgery was a success, and after quite a lengthy recovery, he was able to go home with his parents. Now, Oliver is getting better every day and has a wonderful, love-filled future ahead of him — with his mother beside him every step of the way!
Today on Mother’s Day, we honor mothers like Oliver’s who fought for the opportunity to heal her son’s heart and give him the best life possible. Happy Mother’s Day to all!
