I am a mother. I am a father. I am a sister. I am a brother. And I am someone's child, too. But most of all, I am a devoted parent to my child, who looks to me for love, comfort, guidance, and support. I am part of my child's identity and foundation.
As a 'Chasing Parent', I move into the unknown storms that surround my child's abduction.
I support The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction and urge all nations, regardless of whether they are signatories to the international treaty or not, to follow and enforce expeditiously the rules of law established by the international community.
I do not accept being known as a 'Left Behind Parent'. I will not sit still and allow the criminal act perpetrated against my innocent child to define who I am and what I do.
