This will be a special Christmas for Keona Mock and her new family; one that many people thought she wouldn’t live to see.
Keona was abused before she even left the womb. Her parents were addicted to a variety of illegal drugs that affected her development. Then, at just one month old, she came into Children’s Hospital in a coma with broken legs and ribs. A breathing tube down her throat was the only thing keeping her alive.
“They didn’t know if she was going to live or die, but you see today that she is very much alive,” Tammy Mock, Keona’s adoptive mother, said.
