Her life

So, why November 4th?


This is the day, one year ago, that we started this journey to add another member to our family.


We praise the Lord that He answered our petition for another child.


You can still find me at

or on facebook.


Thank you for being a part of her awesome story!


(and thanks, Michelle Dieleman for your beautiful heart in creating this video. Perhaps someday I won't cry the ugly cry every time I view it:-)

What a beautiful video Jam, and what an amazing story you have to tell. What a year this has been! I too bawled my eyes out...so amazing!

Thank you friend for allowing me to share this journey with you. Tessa's story has taught me so much about God's power and love.

As Stella likes to say "Nothing is too hard for God" And it's true, friend. It's so amazingly true.

And props to Michelle for such an awesome video :)
