As I was reviewing the statistics revolving around child abduction and missing children, I was really alarmed about the percentage of children in the United States that are abducted on a yearly basis. Over 203, 000 children per year are abducted by a family member— that is outrageous!
It astounds me even more that so many people are naive and do not know what family abduction is and/or that it exists!
“Family abduction happens when a family member, usually a parent, kidnaps and conceals a child for any length of time. It is a serious crime that happens to over 203,000 families a year and yet it is not even considered a felony in every state. The emotional, psychological and physical impact on children is often so significant that family abduction is considered a form of child endangerment. While education is the first step to take on this national problem, we’ve also got some great next steps you can take to protect kids from the trauma of family abduction by telling your legislators to help pass laws that will help prevent family abductions across the country.”
I sat here and I think about all of the missing children who are on the milk cartons, in amber alerts, and so forth and take a look at my daughter and realize how thankful I am to have her safe and sound right now. I do not know what I would do if something ever happened to her— if she was ever abducted. However, I am even more grateful that I have been made aware of this crime and that I am and have taken proper precautions to ensure my daughter’s safety. I hope that you will take heed to this too and be empowered by what I’ve said to take that first step to protect your children now before it is too late.
You can take a look at my reviews section and under services I give a personal review one of the top protection programs out there. I hope it helps you to keep your loved ones protected.
