International Abductions

Dear friends, as many of you know, the issue of missing children is a topic that is very close to my heart, one that I have personal experience with.  I know the panic that races through a mother’s head and heart when her child goes missing. There are so many ways a child can go missing. They can wander off, they can be abducted by a family member or other relative, abducted by a stranger or they can run away. A child missing no matter how it happens is truly frightening.  A parent;s worst nightmare.  Many of the children who go missing are abducted, some are found safe, others are not so fortunate and others are abducted by a family member internationally.  Although my son was not abducted he did wander off and it was my worst nightmare come true. It can happen to anyone. I have friends who have are experiencing this horrible nightmare and fighting tirelessly for their children. I have fellow advocates working with them and with lawmakers to enact laws to prevent this from happening.

I am asking each of you to take two seconds to vote for my friend Jen, who oversees the I CARE Foundation’s social media outreach geared to raise awareness of abduction issues. As a top parent blogger, Jen’s and the I CARE Foundation’s work in this area has helped a tremendous number of families around the world.  Here’s the link: http://www.circleofmoms.com/blogger/mom-ology  You can vote daily for the next week until the contest is over.

“In her work with the I CARE Foundation, Jen has played a critical role in stewarding child abduction issues. In this capacity, she has played a key and influencial role in having the US abduction rate drop by 26% these past 2 years with an expected 30% decline in 2013.” Peter Thomas Senese

After you vote would you please share this information along with your friends and ask them to do the same? We need to reach everyone we can.  Each vote will help the I CARE Foundation create greater awareness and help protect more children who are at rick for being abducted.

Love and Blessings to all
