Woman Rescues Baby Blue Jay And He Comes Back To Visit Her Every Day.
Gracie had become a full-fledged member of the Thiessen clan, and he wasn't ready to join his flock.
He had his own way of bonding with everyone, not just Dina. He'd often talk, or in this case, peck, her husband's ear off. It almost seemed like he knew how to make every member of the family feel happier.
He even used the dining table to eat, but there were no tables in the wild, where he'd go eventually.
As much as the Thiessens loved Gracie, they knew it was time to part ways. So after a few tries, the beloved Blue Jay eventually took off into the real world. Then, the Thiessens received the worst news ever.
Dina was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, which devastated her and the entire family.
In the midst of such a horrible diagnosis, something wonderful happened. Gracie started paying the Thiessens a daily visit. Of course, he spent most of his time playing the role of a guardian angel to Dina, or at least pretending to be when he perched himself on her shoulder or back.
Learning that she had developed cancer was difficult for Dina, but Gracie's presence was soothing.
It felt to her as if Gracie empathized with what she was going through. Since Dina had been a surrogate mother to him, he felt that the least he could do was look after her while she recovered from chemotherapy.
Gracie gave Dina and her entire family the strength and the courage to see them through this.
According to Dina, Gracie always knew what she, her husband, and daughter needed to feel better when they were down. Thankfully, Gracie's visits gave them the morale boost they needed, and today, Dina is now cancer-free!
Since Dina would have never gotten through this without Gracie, her husband, Ken had an idea. He wrote a book called "Gracie's Wild Adventures," which tells the tale of how Gracie came into the Thiessens lives and made everything better. But while you can't own Gracie, you can get your very own guardian angel, a TY Beanie Baby Blue Jay plush toy through Amazon.
