Thank you for writing back with that information. I believe then, that she misspelled her Gmail address when associating it in your Gmail account since "kmaitlain @ gmail.com" is NOT the correct recovery email on the record. If you notice, there are 7 characters IN BETWEEN k and n in "kmaitlain" while in the recovery email on record, there are only 6 dots which represent 6 characters only.
In your case, the password ***** option will not work.
The last option is to fill out the recovery form. In this form, you will need to verify your account by providing information that the form will ask of you. Such information includes subjects to emails you sent, email addresses of the people you sent emails to, the date when you can still access the account, the date (approximate only) the account was created, and other similar information.
If it a good thing that you are still able to access your Gmail in your iPhone so that you can actually see the information on your email account like the email addresses of your contacts and the subjects of the latest emails.
In order to access and submit the recovery form to recover your Gmail account and set a new password, you need to open this link in a web browser:
Please follow the on screen procedures to submit the form and wait for Gmail to contact you for the results.
