Bernita Rogers was in the living room when she heard an awful noise. Instinctively, she rushed to check on her baby girl, but when she got there Bernita found her stray cat in the same room as her six-week-old daughter. Straightaway, she could tell that the situation was serious.
Bernita Rogers is a woman with a truly remarkable story. It begins way back in 1986, the year that her daughter was born. Bernita and her husband Roy had been desperate to have a child for years, but they had suffered one tragedy after the next.
Bernita, a nurse, had given birth to three babies before Stacey came along. But every single one of them had passed away during delivery. After that trauma, Bernita described feeling as though she had a hole in her heart which nothing could quite fill.
