A Mother's Nightmare

Meet Terri Steinberg and listen to her story. An ordinary mom of an ordinary family living in an ordinary neighbourhood.

Then Terri’s son, Justin Wolfe, was sentenced to death by the state of Virginia, becoming their youngest resident on death row.

Terri was devastated. She heard about a group protesting the death penalty at the US Supreme Court in Washington, DC. Not knowing the system Terri decided to come to DC to meet those fighting to abolish the Death Penalty at the annual Fast and Vigil.

Meeting people from Virginians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty, Journey of Hope and the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, Terri began her journey to save Justin’s life.

Terri is living in an ongoing nightmare. An experience that would cause many to retreat into their own worlds has only enlarged Terri's. Those who meet her and hear her agree: she's an absolutely extraordinary and caring person.

Listen to her tell her story here:
