I THINK it is Pinocchio ….he was about 7 years old and Gippito made the cabinet. Supposedly it could only transport one person… I was thinking it was a weight issue …. only so much weight / volume could be transferred. TWO kids still were smaller than one adult. Gippito sent Pinocchio through to save him. SNOW would have been smaller in weight and volume then a man so she would have been saved. But since EMMA was born they sent her through not realizing mom and baby could have gone through together but thinking one being instead of weight and volume.
That would explain why a 7 year old boy was at the side of the road and found a baby. Pinocchio and Emma both landed in the same spot, they both went into the foster system. Pinocchio grows up and seeks out Emma.
Pinocchio is the STRANGER ….
of course this is all based on logic and this show is not logical…..
