Hello and welcome to Our Own Journey. My name is Orla also affectionately known as Mummy to three little boys. I am married to Shane and together we have carried each other along a journey we had not packed for. The unexpected part of our journey began in November 2014. Our third perfect baby boy, Eoghan, was born profoundly Deaf. He has brought us on Our Own Journey where he has inspired us to see, hear and feel life in an amazing new way.
I am always so conscious that my view of life is not a reflection of everyone else’s but it might shimmer some light . Even when we walk in the shadows of each others similar path; our tales can be so polar opposite. From every perspective we tell a different story. But we can all find comfort and inspiration from a connection we make with each others voices and experiences. I never ask “why” but rather “why not.” I hope Our Own Journey will inspire yours. xx
