Our Story

The Hamstra Family

We are a family of six (one in heaven) who are trying to serve God as best as we know how.  God has brought us on an incredible, beautiful, terrible, amazing journey.  We have gone through raising biological, foster and adoptive children.  We have had a failed adoption and the death of a beautiful ray of sunshine, our youngest daughter Laila.  Our current adventure is joining Mission Aviation Fellowship as long term missionaries overseas in Papua, Indonesia.

Through every high and every low, we know God has been right by our side.  Thanks for taking the time to journey with us and I ask that you pray for us.  We pray you will find hope, encouragement, acceptance and peace through the words on these pages.
