Abby was a sweet girl, who, despite having been in the foster care system for most of her life, was not hardened or jaded. She had an innocence about her. She was painfully shy around strangers, but would easily open up in one-on-one environments. She loved to cook ,shop, go to the movies and get her nails done. In many ways she was a typical teenager and would binge watch Vampire Diaries and funny cat videos on YouTube.

Like so many foster children, all Abby wanted was to be reunited with her birth family and she did reunite with her family in Texas in November 2015. Abby could not wait to go home. She packed all her belongings weeks before departing and counted the minutes until her flight.

Tragically, Abigail was reported missing on March 22nd after failing to return home from walking the family dog. Her body was found in the woods near her home in Texas a month later. Cause of death is still pending autopsy results.
