Titus is now six months old(!), so I thought it would be fun to post an update on how he’s doing and how Hannah has gracefully continued to parent and give thanks to God in all circumstances.

Family Meeting Mordecai + A Vlog

As promised, I’m here with some sweet photos of family members meeting our new little guy, a video of Sadie meeting her little brother for the first time, and a vlog! First up is a video of Sadie meeting Mordecai.
