The two women regularly exchanged emails and photographs that documented their respective family’s lives. They continued their friendship this way for exactly a year. However, in August 2008, something happened that would change their relationship forever.
It all began when Santos posted a photograph of one-year-old Rowan online. At first glance, the image was just a candid snap of the little girl from her mother’s perspective. However, Robb noticed something about the picture that worried her.
In the image, Robb saw that little Rowan had a strange, white shadow covering her left eye. The mom had a feeling that she’d heard about similar symptoms somewhere before. And, as she racked her brains, she remembered the terrifying reason why they had stuck in her memory.
