Unable to move my feet that had suddenly turned to concrete, I watched as another swell began to build and the mighty dam trying to contain the substantial amount of water was again overwhelmed. The gates of the dam failed and another torrential flood escaped. It followed the same path as the first, only this time the rushing water was accompanied by a high-pitched siren-like sound. This sound caused my heart to jump inside my chest as I took in a sharp breath. My little daughter's distraught cries broke my heart as I watched a river of tears flood her face as she was being escorted to me.
Finally, the reality that my missing little girl had been safely found set in, and I ran to her. With my own river of tears rolling across my face, I embraced my daughter and we tightly clutched each other. We stood there weeping on each other's shoulder. Quietly, my broken voice repeatedly whispered in her ear, "Mommy's here, baby, mommy's here. Everything is all right." After several moments of this reassurance, my daughter and I were able to release our tight grasp and we walked silently home, hand in hand, while I rejoiced and praised God for my child's safe return.
