my best of 2018

2018 was one for the Hailame and Hannah Tua’one memory book! Our life took so many unexpected turns and changes, and in the moment, it was a little scary, but looking back, we are exactly where we are needing to be, and we are so thankful!

Here are a few of my favorites from 2018….


New Years in Page, AZ.

Not the best place to celebrate NYE if you don’t drink (which we don’t). We spent NYE in our hotel room with dinner purchased from the local food market and spent New Years Day hiking and driving around beautiful Northern Arizona!


Decided to look into IVF.

Meeting with Infertility Doctor’s is a extremely vulnerable place to be in. Both Hailame and I were very humbled by the situation, and have a greater respect for those who have been successful with IVF.


Day trip to Lake Mead and Hoover Dam.


Infertility Awareness Month

Shared my thoughts here


Turned 28.

First trip to NOLA (New Orleans, LA)


Decided stop pursing IVF and look into adoption.

Tua’one family activities!


Went to California with Hailame’s brother’s family.

Announced to all our family and friends that we are adopting!


Hintze Family activities!


Hailame turns 39.

Blessed to find a baby to adopt! (baby due in May!)


Four Year Anniversary.


Adoption Yard Sale (I regret not taking more pictures!)


Family Christmas festivities

It’s a girl!

We are humbled by the many blessings and experiences we had in 2018 and we are excited to see what 2019 has in store for us!

The Hintze Family

I’m thankful for seasons in life.  They bring new experiences, change, and challenges that help you grow.


Yet, it’s still hard for me to accept that my family is in a season that only allows us to all be together once or twice every couple of years.

So when we do get the chance to be together and be in the temple, you can bet I’m going to share lots and lots of pictures!



But thanks to modern day technology, when we are a part, we get to talk, share pictures and videos all day, everyday, keeping each other up to date and it feels like we are all together… virtually 🙂


Looking forward to our next wonderful reunion!

Hoping and praying to have a baby or two for Hailame and I to bring with us 🙂


love, hannah jane
