Tomorrow she has to fly across the country to live with parents she's never known. Amber was switched at birth, but the mistake was only recently discovered, and the courts have decided that Amber will split each year between her family in Oregon and her birth parents in Texas. At sixteen, it's a hard reality for Amber to face.
