Those posts tell a lot about Tessa and the following pictures will show how she's changed 'through the years'.
That meant she and her mom spent a lot of time together which was not new - just more intense than in recent years. Here they are on a field trip up Pikes Peak last Spring.
And she's quirky,
She's unfailingly thoughtful, loving, and sensitive, has a great sense of humor, and is always agreeable and cooperative.
