For 19-year-old Meredith, life wasn’t easy. She never got the chance to know her father, and her mother died when she was only six. Raised temporarily by her grandparents, after which Meredith shuffled from one home to another.
Fate stepped in for Meredith when she connected with a young teacher named Anna in high school. Anna became Meredith’s mentor and invited the troubled teen to live with her family for six months, in the hopes that it would help her stand in her own feet.
Anna was 28 years old at the time and she was already raising two kids, along with her husband, Zach. Anna took the role of an adoptive mom to Meredith with open arms, despite having those days when she would feel too young to have a two-year-old and an infant, much less a 19-year-old.
After six months of living at her new home, Anna and Zach set up a camera and called Meredith into the room and sat her down for a very important talk …Meredith had no idea what was coming. Given her past and the heartache she’d endured, she expected the worst.
But little did Meredith know, she was about to be given the surprise of a lifetime.
