Mom of kids found on school bus got to visit with children at custody hearing Friday


Sherrie Shorten saw her 11-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son at a custody hearing Friday in Montgomery County. Shorten just got out of prison and is trying to get custody of her children.

The girl and boy were found living alone in a school bus in Splendora. The bus has electricity and running water. The children are in foster care for the time being.

"Went very good. Kids are very excited. They were asking when they can come home and when they can, you know, be back with mom and dad. And they're healthy, they're happy, they're like I said very excited," Shorten said.

She says is fixing up the bus so she can reunite with her kids.
