Wednesday Wishlist - Lost Child

Wednesday 25th March 2011 is International Missing Childrens Day May. This Wednesday Wishlist is dedicated to those children.

"Children go missing all around the world everyday - some are taken by the people they trust the most - a family member or parent. The issue of family abduction is not only complex, but one in which no country is immune - and it gets worse when children are taken across international borders. Australia, Canada, Brazil, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Romania, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom have recognised this significant issue and are joining to help bring them home"

  1. What a beautiful post from the heart...I think we all need to say a special prayer every day for these baby's to be returned home.

  2. Oh, that's a bit sad. Like those prints tho and the Annie doll.

  3. heart stopping blog ... wow ... i'll be even more paranoid next time we go to the big smoke... we lost one of our kids in an elevator once (when she was 2 and couldn't really talk much) - THAT was awful... lucky the cleaner found her and returned her to reception.
