Post-sentencing statement by Susan Dieter-Robinson:
We are given choices to make in this world. Cinthya made the choice not to come back to the scene of the accident and that greatly impacted how I got to say goodbye to my daughter.
She was one block away from the scene, Im sure scared, trying to figure out what to do next, while I waited for that last moment with Anna. She did not come back so I did not get that moment. By making these choices she has caused a lot of pain and that pain continued in having to relive the night of Oct. 20th through the trial.
I too had a choice to make. I could live the rest of my life full of anger and resentment for the people that didnt come back to the scene of the accident or I could choose to forgive them. I chose forgiveness. This choice allows me not to be stuck but rather to live a life of honoring God and honoring my girls. There is a void in this life without Anna and Abigail but Tom and I are comforted by the fact that we will be with them again in eternity.
Cinthya said she was sorry at the sentencing and thats all I ever wanted to hear. We will continue to pray for her and her family and hope that she lives a life of honor for our girls just like we intend to do.
