Summary: Jessey Prater spent years searching for belonging and love. After living under the dark freeway, Jessey has found light and a family to call her own when a house church offered her a place to stay. Now her daughter Jubilee is growing up in the big family Jessey always wanted – surrounded by brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles from all different backgrounds and walks of life. They’ve found that unconditional love can be messy, but it’s always worth it.
