Adam Miller and son Owen, 5, spent time together Saturday evening on the teeter-totter and other play equipment in Hillsboro’s Memorial Park. The pair are becoming reacquainted after Adam learned that the court-mandated “no-contact order” with Owen no longer holds.
“Ecstatic—that’s the word I’ve been using,” Adam Miller said about spending an extra special Father’s Day weekend with his 5-year-old son, Owen.
“I think it’s an apt word.”
Adam and Owen were reunited Friday after four years of angst and pain that began after Owen sustained an injury that resulted in Adam being convicted of felony child abuse and an order of no-contact with his son.
Owen’s parents sat at a picnic table Saturday evening in Memorial Park to share their saga that has resulted in reuniting father and son.
“I had asked for some official paperwork that would show that there was no longer a no-contact order between Adam and Owen,” said Debbie Darrow, Adam’s former wife.
Debbie, who lives in Denver with Owen, had received a letter from the Marion County attorney Thursday.
“I opened it right away and read through it, giving the ‘thumbs up’ to my sister-in-law, saying ‘This is it—there’s no ‘no-contact’ order anymore,” she said.
“Owen, we’re going to Kansas. We’re going to see your daddy.”
