      I saw Mollie's mother's interview on GMA this morning and was moved to donate. I remember hearing about your daughter missing and then being found and it broke my heart. I am so uplifted and inspired by your act of generosity and kindness to the young undocumented teenager you brought into your home. This is how we heal and honor with the greatest love the ones we lost. Mollie's spirit is soothed by your actions. I pray that young man grows up a giving and active, positive citizen and I send you blessings and love for your son, your husband, yourself and your family and friends. My condolences for your beautiful loss.
