I was able to spend seven days in Texas shortly after the children were taken from the FLDS ranch. My intent was to find my older sister, whom I haven’t been allowed to see or communicate with for nearly eight years. Although I didn’t find her, I believe I was meant to be there. So many incredible things took place.
Because of my polygamist background and my own early-childhood fears that were connected with the 1953 “raid,” as well as a lifetime of understanding, I was invited to help DFS and CASA people to better understand the needs and concerns of the women and children.
I wish I could help them more…
