When Shermeka heard that her niece had been abandoned at a local fire station, she made a choice that would change her life forever.
Tiana was born more than four months premature and has multiple medical conditions. Shermeka knew it would be a challenge to take care of her, but she was determined to do it. One night, when Tiana was crying and Shermeka was overwhelmed, she received help from a friend and realized that she was never alone as a caretaker.
“No, I’m never alone. Physically, I’m never alone because I have my roommate, I have my friends, and I have my ward family. Spiritually, I’m never alone because I have my Heavenly Father and I have my Savior,” she explains.
