Maybe after 26 years in my children’s case, my title for this organization should be Never Ever Stop Looking. As a mother, it is not as if this was just a logical choice I made. It is a need. It is “mothering 101”. It does not matter how old your children are you still think about them, worry about them, miss them, dream about them… and on and on. The only conscious choice I remember involves a conversation I had with myself in the mirror shortly after they were abducted. I was looking at a face that was so devastated and full of emotional pain and fear that it barely looked like me. I realized I was so afraid that I would continue crying or start screaming and not be able to stop. I promised myself that day that I could not allow that to happen. I needed to remain in control of my emotions and fears so that I could do the things that needed to be done to find my boys. And I needed to never stop until they were found. Sometimes children are found because of an active search, sometimes is the smallest detail that prompts further research, and sometimes it is an seemingly unrelated event or that prompts diligent people to act.
