The greatest gift in my life is my son and although there may be days he gets on my nerves, I love him with every single fiber of my being and if he were to go missing whether of his own choice or not, there is absolutely no circumstance that could stop me from looking for him.

I would hope that if my child went missing there would be others who would feel the pull in their heart to help me look for him and to spread the word of his disappearance.

Although I don't know the families of these 16 children, I imagine they're deeply worried and frantic to find their children and whatever small part I can do to help, I will.
