2011 Gratitude Challenge ~ Day Nineteen

Today I'm thankful for my daughter Jessamine.
Jessie was adopted, but not the conventional way. Our story is different and full of scary moments where we thought we might never be able make her ours.

Below is my Jessie song. It's hard for anyone to really fully understand the heartache that Rod and I felt when we had our long court battle to make Jessie legally our daughter.
I was so scared that I was going to loose her.

It was close to Christmas and I was standing in my kitchen feeling hopeless and scared. As far as my heart was concerned, Jessie was already my daughter and had been for years. The thought of loosing her was, at times, way more then I could bare.
I was praying when this song came on the radio and the words touched me and comforted me.
It became my Jessie song.
