Shanell Mosley appeared in court this morning to receive the terms of her probation. Mosley will serve five years probation, but if she makes any mistakes, she could get up to two years in jail. Mosley must perform 150 hours of community service, take parenting classes and surrender her passport while her appeal is pending.

Yesterday Mosley met with her children for the first time since her arrest in January. She says nothing can make up for lost time.

"There's nothing that can replace what I went through. There's nothing that can replace the loss of time with my children, nothing," said Mosley. "I love my children. My children are wonderful children and I'm a good mother."

When asked if she had any regrets, Mosley said yes, but she didn't elaborate. She hopes to regain custody of her children within six to eight months.
