Nevertheless, and despite the most cruel of circumstances and near unimaginable realities, they push on in hope that one day they will reunite with their victimized, abused child. Why? Because they love their child and regardless of the hardships they face, they will do most anything to reunite and safely bring them home.
Without quesiton, they are heroes to their children, even if, duirng the time of their child's abduction, the stolen child may not realize the incredible acts of and determination their targeted parents put forth and must indure.
But they do.
And they do because of the most powerful emotion of all: love.
As a parent who formerly raced into the storms of abduction and in my role as a board member of the I CARE Foundation, I have come to befriend many chasing parents who search for their children.
I have come to know some of the most remarkable men and women in the world. And in my eyes, they are heroes.
Because their committment to their children powered by love is what is right about the world.
Today, there is a significant chance to help children targeted for abduction.
1. Modify the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative so all individuals traveling abroad must present a valid passport regardless age and type of travel.
2. Create a secure screening list for individuals determined by courts or law enforcement as high-risk child abductors who posses a right to U.S. citizenship similar to the existing Prevent Departure Program that only applies to individuals who do not posses a right of American citizenship.
So if your really interested in assisting, on behalf of the I CARE Foundation, we would welcome your assistance. All you need to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
