Their Addiction~ My Journey, “Jesus, Take Her Wheel”

Months ago, I pulled up to the parking garage where the car was left behind. I walked to every business in the vicinity, asking if anyone saw my daughter. I begged to look at outdoor cameras.

There was my daughter, on her knees, fighting the lockless handle, to escape her room.
