Seven years ago, I had a 13 months old and one was pregnant.
Almost seven years ago, a mom in California had Amber Rose Nicklas who had just turned a year old when she was abducted in September 2003. It was an inside job, Amber Rose was in Foster Care and taken by her Aunts. Still, she was missing.
Two of those Aunts were captured. The one with Amber Rose, was not.
See how the abduction happened with this video from ABC News.
Yesterday, a tip lead police to a home in Phoenix, Arizona, to the family that had no biological relation to Amber Rose Nicklas. The child was hidden in a shower, under towels and clothing. Her name and birthdate had been changed.
Like other victims of abduction we have read about, Amber Rose Nicklas was kept from attending school.
The child is not in the custody of the State of California and charges are being filed.
It will take some time for the complete story to unravel. I’m curious to know if Amber Rose will be returned to her mother or if the cause for her initially being in the Foster Care System will supercede this.
Do you think this is a happy ending?
