Ollie Tibbles: The Boy Who Became a Train

By Debi Tibbles

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”

“I’m going to be a train.”

I laughed. “You mean you want to be a train driver, right?”

“No.” Ollie put his hands on his hips. “I want to be a train, silly, and I’m going to be someday.”

Debi’s life as a stay-at-home mum of three began to change the morning the elementary school secretary called. Her five-year-old had a headache. When he had another and another, each progressively worse, worry set in. Something in the doctor’s kind eyes told Debi, Prepare yourself. This child is in for a fight.

Ollie Tibbles: The Boy Who Became a Train is a journey down the track of the unending love between a mother and her child. It is a story of hope and the true miracle of a young boy’s wish come true.
