Nejdra Nance is now Carlina White

How would it feel to discover not only that you have a birth mother but that you were kidnapped?

For many years, Nejdra Nance has believed that she didn’t belong.  And that there was someplace else she was supposed to be.  And even those who knew her had their own suspicions. 

By now, everyone has seen the story on TVor read the newspapers knows the happy ending.  And it’s the oldest case in history to result in a found child.  We’ve seen the smiles and tears of her birth relatives as they welcome her home.  But there are still a lot of questions to be asked…and everyone involved wants answers. 

This story is not over, espcially for Carlita as she starts to gain clarity of who she is.  But her story proves an important point.  There’s a place in our spirit that knows the truth.  We just have to listen.

Blessings to you all this cold, snowy weekend.
