Description : While out exercising the afternoon of February 9, 1989, college student Tiffany Sessions disappeared. Her mother, Hilary, frantically tried to find her, but after twenty years, Tiffany is still missing. "Where's My Tiffany?" is a heartrending glimpse into one mother's struggles to deal with the emotions, hardships, and grief over the loss of her daughter. With intimate detail, Sessions reveals how the case unraveled, from the first moments of Tiffany's disappearance through the agonizing search for clues, and finally, to the eventual realization that Tiffany might not come back safely. But Sessions also focuses on how she turned her tragedy into a personal victory by never giving up hope. Instead of losing to the darkness of despair, Sessions sought to help other families of missing children and became a teacher, children's advocate, and legislative shepherd. She also explores the deeply personal spiritual journey she underwent during the twenty-year saga, one that made her a stronger, more courageous person. Brutally honest and deeply moving, "Where's My Tiffany?" offers a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the incredible void left by a missing child. Yet it is also a story of hope and comfort for others facing this devastating challenge.
