The hard part is over for Macy Neely, 8, and her grandmother, Christy Hawks. But even though she is safe and sound, she still has to readjust to life in East Tennessee.
Hawks rescued Macy from a Mexican orphanage in January with the help of a team of child advocates. Macy lived there for three years as a ward of the Mexican government. Guadalajara police found her when she was barely four years old abandoned, with only her dog. She spoke only Spanish at the time of her rescue, a language no one in her family knows.
