Tess Collins McDonald


We received a terminal fetal diagnosis of anencephaly for our 3rd child and precious daughter, Tess, in November of 2022.

She was born stillborn at 36 weeks on February 25th, 2023.

Her life, while short, was impactful in every way.

She is loved and cherished by her mom, dad, and older sister and brother Grace and Clarke, and so many others who supported our family along the way, although they were not able to meet her.

Our family is forever, and we long for the day when we can all be reunited❤️


We connected with Abel Speaks about a month before Tess was born – and immediately were blessed both spiritually and temporally by the services they provided us.

We have continued to be supported in intimate and priceless ways throughout this first year without Tess.

Donating to their organization in Tess’s honor would mean the world to our family as we find a way to express our immense gratitude to Abel Speaks.

By faith, Tess still speaks!
