About This Website:
This web site was created in 2006, to share our adoption journey with family and
friends. We have kept the site alive as an archive of our journey, and as a way
to share our adoption experience with others. It is our prayer that that Tessa's
story will capture your imagination, inspire your soul, and cause you to consider
a God who has designed a path for you which is far greater than your wildest dreams.
We sincerely hope you are blessed by the incredible story of our journey to our
-- The Hale Family --

Promises from God:
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
"Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west."
"A father of the fatherless and a defender of widows is God in His holy habitation. God sets the solitary in families; He brings out those who are bound into prosperity."
