Thriving and growing through adversity.

Jennilyn Eckersly shares how her experiences of life-threatening pregnancy, secondary infertility, adoption, and losing her husband have strengthened her.  Jennilyn’s story pulls at our heartstrings and invokes feelings of gratitude and awe.  Talking with her makes me want to head up a cheer squad to circle around Jennilyn and shout “Hip-Hip-Hooray!” for all she’s overcome.
