In March 1994, Sarah's appendix ruptured and she had an emergency operation which she soon recovered from.
In her early teenage years, Sarah became a fussy eater because she believed she was fat.
Brian didn't believe it at first but eventually accepted Sarah as one of his own and it took some time for him to bond with her.
Brian was murdered by a group of thugs shortly after Sarah's second birthday.
At thirteen, Sarah had a baby daughter, Bethany, and raised her with her family's support (Neil Fearns, Beth's father, stayed away).
