In all of the commotion, one of her joeys got lost. Here is the video of them being reunited.

We have to be really cautious about giving advice over the phone. In fact, instead of giving instruction, I usually just describe what we would do if we were there.
I felt this was a time-sensitive situation, so I walked Amanda through a hypothetical fawn reunion, including a strong warning about the mother. Does can be extremely protective of their babies and have been known to attack people. The key to staying safe is being large and many - a doe is less likely to take on a "pack".
We ended the call with Amanda very confident that she could safely place the baby in a good spot for mom to retrieve it.
I called her back a short while later to check on the status of the fawn.
