IN MEMORY OF
MICHAEL WADE O'CONNOR
born February 25, 1990 and
died February 26, 1990.
by Mommy, Daddy, Brothers and Sisters:
Michael was born February 25, 1990. This year he would have celebrated his 23rd birthday. Michael was born with hyperplastic left heart
syndrome. From the moment of birth, doctors gave us no hope. He lived 24 hours.
Michael was our fourth child, two sons by adoption and a daughter and son by natural birth. He was to be our last. However, after his death,
we decided to have another child, not to replace him, but to experience the joy of life. The result of that pregnancy was another daughter. She
is now 21 years old and about to graduate from college. Three years ago she brought home this wonderful boy she had met at school. This past
Valentine's Day, this young man presented her with an engagement ring and they will be married soon. Her finance recently celebrated his
23rd birthday. He was born February 25, 1990.
I really believe God works in mysterious ways. He closed one door, and opened another.
