“I got her from a bureau in Kisumu and she came in April 2013,” she tells media.
Even though the nanny wasn’t really good at her job, her boss decided to give her a chance as it was quite hard at the time to find another.
However, the Kenyan woman would be regretting at the moment because in the year 2015, whilst at the place of work, one of her neighbors called her saying she had seen her nanny and never came back since morning.
At around 10am, the nanny said that her boss had sent her for milk and baby’s diapers
“I came home very fast only to find it locked. My baby was missing. I literally ran to the bureau that helped me get the nanny to report the matter. She had actually assured me that the girl was her friend’s daughter,” she recalls.
When she reported to the bureau, she found out that the office had no idea where exactly the nanny came from.
“I immediately reported the matter at the Kondele Police Station, obtain an OB number and recorded a statement on the same,” Terry told media.
She later started spreading the information about the missing nanny and child on social media platforms.
“A friend also uploaded a picture of my daughter together with the nanny on all her social media platforms seeking anyone with information about their whereabouts,” she recalls.
The Kenyan woman became restless and very worried how she could find her missing daughter who was only 5 months old.
“Social media is powerful because, after nine days, we received a phone call from a Kenyan business lady who said she had seen a girl resembling the one in the picture, in a town neighboring Uganda.
They said that the baby was crying uncontrollably. And this broke my heart. We requested her to take a picture of the child and indeed it was my daughter,” Terry says.
The lady was asked to take the child to the nearest police station as they drove to the border
“That is how I got my baby back. Upon interrogation, we discovered that the bureau had sent the nanny to steal the baby and sell her to a woman in Uganda.”
Terry’s experience changed her.
“I have since learned to be extra vigilant with nannies. I also installed a nanny camera in my house so I can monitor everything while I am away,” she says.
“I could not imagine life without my daughter,” the mother added.
