It was one of the most heart wrenching tragedies from Superstorm Sandy.

A mother with her two young children, desperately searching for a safe place to ride out the storm.

She repeatedly knocked on doors, begging homeowners to let her in, but no one did.

Her children were swept away in the overwhelming floodwaters.

She spoke about her life since then exclusively to Eyewitness News.

"It's been a tough week, it's been a year since we lost the boys," said Glenda Moore.

In terms of moving on, Moore is taking all the right steps, but she says sometimes it still doesn't feel like she's getting very far.

"At least we're busy during the day...think about them," she said.

Her 4-year-old Connor and her two year old son Breandan died in the storm, swept away by the storm surge in Staten Island.

The 40 year old nurse says it is with her patients with old souls who have given her wounded one a bit of peace.

Moore told police that she was turned away when she begged a neighbor to let them inside.

After the tragedy, she was one of the families consoled by President Obama.

Now she's eager to move into a new home and try to have more kids, but she's very frustrated.
