TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Stories continue as new paths emerge

July 17, 2018 Teresa Brierley

I am scribing this message from my daughter’s home on the Gold Coast, as she has just given birth to another son and I am caring for the other two boys.

Mum and baby are doing well and we thank God for the blessings of the safe arrival of another member of our growing family.
