Whilst searching for another photo, I ran across this first photo I took of Bailey and Harrigan just after I placed them in the van near the birth home west of Mason and on LaSourdesville Road.
I placed them in the laundry basket and they whimpered for a while as I returned to my telephone call with Mother that Christmas night, 2013.
All of a sudden, the eight week old sisters had hushed and I thought they’d tired and fallen asleep. I flipped the overhead light on and peered over my shoulder and they were gone. I pulled the van over to the shoulder on I-75N and parked. I turned on all the lights and before rising to search for them, I looked down.
Bailey and Harrigan had crawled out of their non-bull rush basket and was sleeping contently next to my driver’s seat.
