Frank Somerville is a news anchor for KTVU news in Oakland, CA. Recently, a young woman named Tawny reached out to him with a story so incredible that Somerville shared it on his own Facebook page.
Tawny is a single mother of four beautiful little girls — 9, 5, 2, and 6 weeks old. Things have been particularly rough for her since her ex left.
One day, Tawny desperately needed groceries, so she loaded her girls up in her rundown truck and headed off to the store. By the time they left the store, it was dark outside and pouring rain. Tawny tried turning the engine on, but much to her frustration, the battery was dead. “I have no family to speak of and was on my own,” she wrote.
Over the course of the next couple of hours, Tawny desperately asked at least 20 people for a jump. But they all ignored her. Tawny felt like like she and her girls didn’t even exist.
As her tired and hungry daughters began to melt down, Tawny herself broke down in tears, feeling hopeless and helpless. All she wanted was to get her kids home.
That’s when Tawny heard a knock on the passenger window.
