“I’d rather have my child, but by golly, if I gotta give her up, we’re gonna make it count.”
—Susan Bro”You poke that finger at yourself like Heather would have done, and you make it happen,” Bro said. “You take that extra step and you find a way to make a difference in the world!”

“Say to yourself, ‘What can I do to make a difference?’ And that’s how you’re going to make my child’s death worthwhile,” Bro continued. “I’d rather have my child, but by golly, if I gotta give her up, we’re gonna make it count.”
