I wonder if the visit was the result of the Priesthood blessing. I have a strong testimony of Priesthood blessings and perhaps sending Amber to comfort her friend was the best way to fulfill it. This is such a very heartbreaking story, but I am glad your family has the gospel and faith in Heavenly Father to sustain you.

Becky, as always you express yourself in such openness and truth. These experiences were so heartrending and yet I have observed how your beautiful faith has grown and sustained you and those in your path. You are a blessing to so many.

I cant imagine how difficult these years were for your family. Thank you for sharing and God bless all of you for enduring to the eventual 'new way of living' through unimaginable loss.

The bottom portion of the article is from Becky's adopted daughter Jolanta's point of view.

Becky, as I read, it sounded like Amber was your daughter and yet you didn't know about her said you were 12 years old when Amber died. I'm confused, if you were married, etc. This must be a typo.

Amazing and heart-rending story! I am amazed at the author’s strength and resiliency. Life can be so difficult and hard to understand in its seeming unfairness. Thank you for sharing your experiences. It gave me a renewed appreciation and love for suffering brothers and sisters, as well as how H.F. intercedes.

This article is so real. I'm struggling with my own crisis and it's so nice to hear such a candid example of a messy life and how God is still involved in horrendous circumstances. Thank you for sharing.
