    As we give thanks to GOD for the safe return of Maria, may we continue to pray that each moment of every day brings Maria closer to being her old loving and caring self as many of us have known her to be. To my cousins, we here in Florida continue to lift each of you up in prayer and know that no matter how far we are, we are with you in spirit. GOD is AWESOME and he will continue to bless your family. Love, FLORIDA!!

    Yay she was found! Is she a single parent?? I know things are tough at first but it gets way better, trust me! Keep your hear up and everything will be ok. Honestly walking away was the right thing to do when you have a newborn. Some parents end up hurting their child and I commend her for doing the right thing. Depression may be hitting hard but it'll die down eventually and you will love your rewards in the end. Love on your baby, burp the baby when fussy and everything will be ok sooner then you know! Glad both you and baby are safe. Take care and pray often.

    Praise be to God for Maria's safe return. Keep your head up, Maria - you are a sweet, beautiful, and smart young lady, one of the brightest students I knew at CHS, and you have a great family and a lot going for you. God is with you. Your family is in my prayers.
