Posted: Updated:

Quentorria Snowden is thankful to share this holiday season with her daughter, Leondra Hooks.

"I'm glad that I get to spend Thanksgiving with one of my kids. God spared one for me. I'm glad she made it out of surgery. She hasn't sit yet since she been out of surgery," said Hooks mother Quentorria Snowden.

The two year old had another surgery last week. The toddler suffered life threatening damage to her abdomen. She was shot while sleeping in her home at moody manor.

"She's more active than she usually is," said Snowden.

The mother clearly remembers the night she got the call someone had shot up her home. The violence took the life of Snowden's other daughter Keondra. She was just one years old.

"She was a great child she was sweet. She was Leondra's boss basically. The Little sister was the big sister boss but otherwise she was a great child," said Snowden.

Police arrested three men in connection to the shootings. It's been a difficult and emotional time for this mother. A mother who says she's grateful for the community support.

"I just want to thank everybody who came together and supported us. I know there's been a lot of bad things that have been said about me and the father but you gave us the benefit of the doubt and you helped us and prayed for us everything I don't care if it was just sending a card I just want to thank everybody," said Snowden.
