Our Beloved Daughter Prior to Treatment

We have learned so much since June 2015. Our daughter was in postpartum depression, medicated with an antidepressant and was undergoing a form of "recovered memory therapy". We now also know that our family (and all her sisters) suffer from metabolic issues (inherited) that cause highly adverse reactions to the antidepressant (SSRI) she reported taking in facebook post. Horrid and bizarre delusions have since caused estrangement but these pictures help us remember the many good times we had with her prior to her experience and harmful counseling in Walla Walla, Washington. We continue to pray for a miracle and her freedom.
