ATLANTA (WJW) — A photo of a young Georgia boy is offering hope to many during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The photo shows a boy, named Owen, bowing his head in prayer.

His mother, Brandee Hanes, says her son was praying for his Grandpa Chuck who has been battling the coronavirus.

Several members of their extended family had been diagnosed with the virus and while many have recovered, Owen’s grandfather remains hospitalized.
