TEKENYA HAS BEEN FOUND!

Maybe we can all learn some lessons from this case. Had we not all banded together and put pressure on and given this little girl exposure, would the results have been the same?

Maybe we can save the world one little girl at a time!

I am glad Tekenya has been found safe! Thanks for sharing this, Delilah. You ask a good question...Could the results have been different, had not so many people banded together?
