I need to close this chapter of my life to look to the future.”  Ashley feels it is her responsibility to foster whatever relationship she can with her dad, as she remained in contact with her father’s sister and brother-in-law.

She headed down to Georgia with her mother, aunt, and uncle. Though hesitant, Ashley was full of compassion and ready to meet her father. “I’m hoping that my dad will feel a little more comfortable having Uncle Jim and Aunt Sheila there.
