Part of this mother's daily routine quickly turned terrifying. 

"My heart dropped to my knees," Tijwanna Robinson says. "My heart was in my hand, I was very scared."

On Monday, the school bus that normally carries Tijwanna's 2nd grade daughter instead arrived at their Twiggs County home without her.

"I thought that my daughter was abducted, kidnapped, raped," she said. "Anything could have happened to my daughter at the time."

Tiatianna Robinson is a special needs student at Jeffersonville Elementary School in Twiggs County. 

She used the bathroom after school Monday and missed the bus that goes to her home in Dry Branch.

But Tijwanna says she didn't get a call from school officials.

Instead, she says a teacher put her daughter on a different bus, even though the driver told the teacher it was the wrong bus.

A special needs student, Titatianna wasn't able to tell the school bus driver where she lives. 

Titatianna's parents had to call the school to track their daughter down.

"Didn't have no courtesy call, didn't no one call us, didn't no one tell us anything about our child," Robinson said.

Tiatianna says the incident made her feel "scared" and "unhappy" because she was put on the bus without her brothers and cousins.

Twiggs County Schools have declined to comment on the incident, and say it's under investigation.  

Robinson told 13WMAZ the superintendent is looking into it and called it a "horrific experience."
