Anna dealt with the pain by drinking, hanging out with the wrong crowd, and getting in trouble. She put up walls, blocking people out - like her mother, Debi. "She had got brought home at like 3 o'clock in the morning by the police," Debi recalled. "Those are the kinds of things she was doing. I could see it, and it was tearing me up inside."
Debi turned to Mercy Me Ranch, and the HALO program.
Smitha George from KVAL News visited the HALO program for a story set to air on KVAL News next week.
