South Africa
My husband, Brett and I live in beautiful South Africa and have been blessed with the most precious family. We have 2 very beautiful and brave daughters, Tianna (15) and Angelee (12) and a very precious little boy called Zac who touched our hearts forever in his 1 day here on earth. We never would have imagined that we would have to live this side of Heaven without our sweet boy who was born with half a heart, but every day Jesus carries us through and is teaching us more than ever how to live, laugh and love fully. 3 years ago our faithful Great Restorer graciously blessed us once again with another son ... our beloved Gabriel ... a ray of sunshine in all our lives! "Love in Action" is our journey as a family to love the way Jesus is teaching us to love and live.

We have a TEENAGER!

13 years ago, God gave us the precious gift of a beloved first born daughter. In what feels like a blink of the eye, our "little bear" has stepped from childhood into becoming a precious, beautiful teenager this past weekend. This mommy is soaking in every little cuddle from my growing-up princess ...
 And this daddy could not be any prouder of the gem that our Tianna is in all our lives ...
I loved watching her soak in the joy of every moment of her day. From opening pressies ...
To hanging with her special JHB cuzzies and family ...
She appreciated every moment of her day! A total highlight was her "lumo" party that night.



These sweet girls danced, swam, chatted, played ball and had SUCH fun. May they never loose their child-like simple joy of life.



A "forever" moment for me was having all her family gathered around her to bless her as she stepped into becoming a young lady. 

And it meant THE WORLD to her that her Uncle, Aunt and cuzzies drove 11 hours and brought all the sound and lighting to throw her a party to celebrate her special milestone. Niqui, Ian, Janique, Ashlynn and Kenzie ... we love and appreciate you with all our hearts! You guys made her birthday unforgettable!!!!




To my precious Tianna ... you are a joy and delight to all who know you. Our precious Jesus has spoken such incredible destiny over your life and Mommy and Daddy are cheering you on every step of the way as you continue to discover His plans and purposes as you walk through life.  May you always know how much we treasure you and thank our Father for choosing us to be your parents. 
We love you treasure girl and could not be prouder!
Love Mom & Dad

Happy birthday beautiful girl. I can't believe she's 13, I remember it being just yesterday when Niqui came to tell me about her birth.

Such amazing photos. I'm sure she's brought you 13 years of joy & happiness and so many more ahead.

Well done on raising such beautiful, well rounded young lady.
