Leah T Stevens
The beloved and beautiful Leah Stevens was killed in a car accident August 19, 2004, she was 15 years old. While travelling away from home she and her 12 year old sister Tamara were riding together in a car which spun out of control, the driver swerved off the road to avoid on-coming traffic, and smashed into a light pole.
They were both rushed to the hospital, Leah was unconscious and in bad shape, i received a call at 12:30 am by my daughter crying and yelling hysterically, it was the phone call every mother dreads, she said they were in a car accident and my daughter was rushed into surgery.
The worst part was being so far away from her, i had to sit on a plane for 5 hours all the while thinking my daughter is dead and having no way of knowing for sure.
I ran into the hospital, i screamed and yelled but none of the nurses would let me see my daughter, they made me sit in a room until a nurse finally let me in the or to see my daughter, she was completely covered in a white sheet from head to toe, Tamara was sitting next to her crying. I felt numb, not a singe emotion, standing there looking at my babies motionless body. My other two sons and my husband joined me and i watched as they cried and consoled each other, still unable to feel a thing. That night changed my life forever, I am a doctor and i can't go to work anymore cause every time someone comes in i think of my daughter and how i couldn't help her. my heart is broken beyond repair, and my family torn apart, i have know idea who i even am anymore.
