So yesterday someone found a new story from 1964 of a woman and her young daughter being missing. The woman's sister Gloria still looks for her sister and her niece. So today I talked to Gloria in case she might be my Aunt! She was such a nice woman and we had a difficult conversation about possibilities but healing just the same! She may or may not be my Aunt but this thing called Missing Persons has now bonded us in a way that only people here can understand! I gave her the link here… Continue

I got a phone call from a TV reporter today looking to do a story on Elizabeth Gill who has been missing since the 1960s. I had DNA testing done against Elizabeth and she wanted to do the other side of the story. She spoke to me for about an hour. She said that I need to tell my story because nobody ever tells the story of the abduction victim. She is going to contact the local TV station here and see if she can get them to come and do my story that she can hook in with her story about… Continue

composite sketch of my mother done. I had met the Forensic Sketch Artist at a couple of conferences and she is just an angel. If you have ever met Diana you would know that she puts all of her energy into whatever she is doing. I wanted her to do this sketch because I knew her and felt comfortable sharing my memories of my mom with…

I thought maybe this time of year would be a good time to Thank the LE members who have been helpful in Missing Persons or DV. Mark Klass's newsletter made me think of this. I would be willing to send a Christmas card and Thank you to anyone who has a LE official or even secretary who has been helpful in your case. Please post their information here and how they have helped and I will send a card out within the next week!
Love You All

I have been talking with a friend and she suggested (thanks Lisa) I try posting pictures of me and the couple who abducted me and have pictures online for people who may be searching. I would have to do it without mentioning names and just put that I was abducted. But possibly someone might recognize them also and know who I am. Are there any people here who run missing websites that would be willing to create a place for me and others like me to post pictures and what we remember about our… Continue

I once read a book that changed the challenging times in my life. "Hinds Feet on High Places" by Hannah Hurnard.
One of the hardest things about challenging times or bouts of depression was the feeling that I was back in that "SAME" place again! How would I ever get out of this Place? Well this book is a story about the character Much Afraid and her journey to the top of the Mountain to be with the Shepard. Along her journey to the top of the mountain she ended up going through… Continue

Well I read Sarah's blog about Closure and it gave me an idea. I hope all can follow along lol ... Hang in there it might make sense by the end...
During a difficult time in my life I made one side of my bedroom door a WALL OF ENCOURAGEMENT I hung a sign for my wall and then began taping all the cards that people had given me to encourage me on the door until it was full. After I hung the sign I realized that the middle of the word encouragement was COURAGE and knew that my friends… Continue

Since attending the CUE conference last year I have increased my prayer life. I met a woman there who took a necklace off her neck and gave it to me. Her daughter had given it to her. It says PUSH which she explained stands for Pray Until Something Happens. I took the necklace and decided to dedicate it to finding my mom and when I find her I will give her the necklace and explain how prayer led to our finding each other again!
Well last week after even new disappointments in my… Continue

I know that this blog may be long but I wanted to share some of how it felt to recover from the severe trauma. I am hoping that putting it to words may help others understand how some survive the most horrible of conditions and then come out of it to survive and have a happy life one day!
In the beginning there is a lot of confusion when you mind tries to make sense with what has happened. The abductors are not stable individuals so the things they say to you do not help. Their words… Continue
