Note from Publisher: Freeing Teresa is a work of nonfiction. Some of the names and identifying factors have been changed.
Note from Author: The text in the images above is based on videos, audio recordings, and/or emails produced during the actual events. With the exception of Teresa, my siblings do not wish to be identified with this story. I have used pseudonyms for them. In the book where their photos appear, I have replaced their images with blank space. The silhouettes above are symbolic representations, echoing their absence in my life. My father was always a strong supporter of Teresa’s freedom; however, in the photo where he appears, I have blurred his face. The police officer’s face has been redacted in white.
