SUCCESS STORY!

Postby smitchell4 on Wed Sep 05, 2012 6:31 pm

I posted that I was heartbroken and unable to get my baby, Mandy from California to Columbus Ohio. I must admit I really lost hope when I hadn't heard back from an alternate transport service that utilizes truckers to transport. My children and I escaped a DV situation and our dog was unable to come with us due to airline weight restrictions. I was heartbroken. Imagine my surprise when I found out how many pilots it would take to get her to me. HOWEVER, there were 5 angels who came together and my baby was brought home this afternoon. I couldn't stop the tears from flowing when I looked at her. It has been 3 months since I last held her, and in that moment my heart leaped like never before. I want to give a big shot out to everyone who made it possible Mandy is home and my children have their "sister" back. THANK YOU! Your work and efforts are not in vain. If I can EVER be of assistance and give back in ANY way that I possibly can, I am willing. Thank you!!!!!! The amount of work it took to coordinate 5 different flights and in such a short amount of time is nothing short of a miracle. We are truly ever grateful.

As the final pilot in this mission, I was very skeptical in the beginning that this would be pulled off. Just too many stars to align. But, alas, it all worked out, even with some iffy weather today. I am just sorry I was not able to enjoy more time with you. We were beating some weather back home, so we had to leave immediately. Glad it all worked out.
