“Bryan Morales learned of the birth of his daughter, Alyseia, clutching her black-and-white photo in his prison cell.
‘It was a wake-up call,’ said Morales, 36, sitting at the Liberty Lake home where he was arrested nearly three years ago on charges of theft and forgery. Morales’ girlfriend, Sara Borgman, had checked herself into a drug clinic in Seattle a few days prior to Morales learning he was a father. When Morales was arrested, Borgman was pregnant, and Alyseia was born addicted to opiates.”
