"My son was born via emergency c-section at 25 weeks due to placental abruption. He faced so many difficulties - chronic lung disease, bleeding on his brain, eye damage - just to name a few. The stress we faced during his 133 day stay was unimaginable, and to top it off, the company his dad worked for shut down. When Owyn's Butterfly Kisses found this out, they immediately took action to help us. They gave us hundreds of dollars in gas/grocery cards. At a time when I was so exhausted with this journey, they stepped in and gave me hope. In a single word, the ladies at Owyn's Butterfly Kisses are amazing. I could never repay them for all they did for our family."
