30 Days of Thanks-Day 4

Today I am thankful for my daughter Jenna.
This child has had her world completely turned upside down this year and has handled it with grace and maturity beyond what I could have ever imagined.

She went from being 11 years an only child where the world revolved around her to being a big sister and giving unconditional love and acceptance of this little Asian usurping her only child role.  In those early days where Steve and I were coming apart at the seams, she saw us at our very worst and not one time did she wish for things to go back to the way it was before or wish we'd never adopted.  She's 11 y'all.  Any of us would understand if she had.  But she didn't.  And there's no way to adequately tell you what kind of sister she is to Kylie.  I mean, people talk about it all the time.  It is one of the reasons I'm grateful we did wait as long as we did.  She is just...an amazing child of God.

I am thankful.
