Tamisha says she never forgot the day she was taken from Mary. "I was definitely traumatized. I was crying, hysterical," she says. "I remember trying to hold onto Mary. I was devastated. It was home. It was what I knew. I was crying all the way from Mary's house to my now mother's house."
Tamisha says she didn't understand what was happening at the time. "I thought that I was there because they couldn't have children," she says. "Once they had a child, I thought: 'Well, my services are no longer needed. I'm being shipped away.'"
