Woman Says She’s Worked ‘Extremely Hard’ To Stay Sober And Deserves To Have Her Daughter Back
Gabe admits she hasn’t always made the best choices. She says her worst decision was using heroin during pregnancy. As a result, Gabe says her d aughter, Avery, was born seven weeks premature, weighed only four-and-a-half pounds, and was on oxygen for two days.
