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 daughter!

-- The Hale Family --
