This site is all about stories.

Setting up home in a new country, fostering and then adopting two children, parenting a child with special needs… all these experiences and more have filled my life with stories.

This site is a place for sharing the real life stories of heroism we all live out every day. It’s also a place for sharing fictional stories – especially children’s stories – that make the world a more colourful place.

A bit about myself

Tessa Joseph

Tessa grew up in the UK and now lives in Israel with her husband and two adopted children.

Tessa loves learning new things and always has a hundred books on the go at the same time. She is particularly fascinated by the human mind, and the power of the thoughts we think to bring freedom and change. As a great world-changer once said: “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

Tessa also loves flowing water, green hills and the sound of absolute silence (something that feels like a distant memory in a house with two under-fives!).
