Imagine the moment you can’t find your baby. Your heart beats faster when you lose sight of them in the supermarket. Your heart is in your mouth when a momentary wander takes them from your view at the beach.
The feeling of relief when you see them toddling or wandering about again is overwhelming. Imagine never having that, never seeing them walking back to you, never knowing the relief of seeing their face again.
Madeleine McCann went missing on 3 May 2007 , in the Portugese town of Praia da Luz – today she is still lost. It was a family holiday, like the ones you and I take each year with our children, expecting sand, sun and to come home with red shoulders and wonderful memories. Today is her 10th birthday and as bloggers we’re helping to raise awareness about this. To keep this little girl in the public consciousness and help her family in their continuing fight to search for Madeleine.
There are hundreds of children still missing. That’s hundreds of parents going to bed each night just not knowing. Can you imagine? If we as a community can raise awareness even for a moment then we’ve made a difference. The campaign tag is #blogging4madeleine and hopefully as many people as possible will help us bring this campaign to life.
It’s International Missing Children day on 25th May – so please take a moment to look at the site, and look around you. You may be able to help a family end a living nightmare – one none of us ever want to face.
The Big Tweet for Missing Children is also coming soon – so please get involved if you can.
