“I was pregnant with our third child, and my hormones had gotten the best of me. I grabbed my phone and called 9-1-1. I started screaming his name, ‘ANDY, ANDY, ANDY,’ as I frantically looked on the shore line that was covered in trees. I hear the sirens roaring, coming in my direction.”
“Suddenly, I desperately needed to see her face again. I scrambled through boxes and boxes of family photos but she wasn’t in any of them.”
“The woman who had the girls was not at all family, but a friend from church. They had been removed from her care and were in a foster home. After we got off the phone, I panicked – what was I going to do?”
“I could not believe it. I was sobbing and couldn’t believe this was real life.”
“I grieve giving you to her. You won’t be mine anymore.”
“My heart began to race. Here was this woman, my mother-in-law, risking her life to give me the best gift of my life. I tried to hold back my tears.”
“My daughter told me her sister was a snow fairy, and informed me she was related to Elsa. I should have known children see no differences.”
