The one story she’ll never forget: The shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary Schoolin Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012. “That night, when I went home, I picked up all my kids, who were asleep in their beds, and brought them into our bed,” she said. “I wanted to hear and feel them breathing because I could, and that felt like a huge blessing that night.”
