Each year, over 58,000 children are reported as missing.

The child on the left, above, is Morgan Nick; she was six when abducted from a baseball game in Alma, Arkansas; the photo on the right has been computer age-enhanced to show what she may look like now, 10 years later.

If you see a missing child, call 1-800-THE LOST.

Somewhere, a family waits...

I never gave up ...
I always hoped ...
I always,
loved you,
and still do --
I've kept the front porch light on,
burning through the night
for all of these nightmare years,
praying that you'd see it ...
a beacon of light
to lead you to my door
and into my life once again.
Darling, please come home,
where you belong;
where you're missed;
where you're loved;
where you're needed;
where you're SAFE.
It's still on ...
the porch light burns for you.
It won't go out until
you're back home,
safe in my arms again.
I won't give up ...
I'll always hope ...
I'll always
love you
and love always hopes.

(c) 2005, Karla Dorman.

Beautifully expressed Karla !!!! Love always hopes. It is sad at the number of children that are abducted, abused and molested. I cry for the children! And we have to keep telling the children to speak up when someone hurts them. I think this has been going on forever, but it's just now coming out in the open. Your words are all about hope. Love it!

Oh Karla, you've done a good job with this well crafted and heartbreaking write. I've often wondered how so many children and teen agers can disappear and never be heard from again? Are they alive, dead, out of the country or where? One would think that some of the abductees
would somehow return, but very few ever do. Well done, Karla!

Dear Karla,
As Tinka said below, this IS a sad reality for many. I once had a friend that lost her child aged 12. She was abducted by a well known paedophile in this country 'Gert Van Rooyen'. He was caught by police but ended his life before they could find out what had happened to the 8 little girls that had been abducted by him and his female accomplice, Joey Haarhof. The girls or their remains have never been found and there disappearance remains a mystery. Who can even imagine what their parents went through. I know that Noreen who lost her precious daughter Tracey went through a living hell. I ache to think of this. Thanks for sharing this. It is so important that caring people such as yourself do share to raise awareness. This is a beautiful world but it is also filled with insidious evil and we need to be on guard. Well done!
love your friend in sunny South Africa

What a tragic limbo for people to try to survive in. The horror of your child being abducted and the fear that they have been/are being abused or murdered has got to overshadow anything good in life. How do they go on, how do they retain their hope. God bless the children and all who await their return. Very beautifully done, Karla.

Take care,

Karla, far too many children and even adults end up missing each year with no end in sight. I believe if caught, the perpetrator(s), providing of course there isn’t any shadow of a doubt about their guilt, should be hung in the middle of town square and left to rot! These savages who prey upon little, innocent children, should never be allowed to take another breath or have the opportunity to take someone else’s life! It makes me sick to my stomach when I hear that any child has been abused in any way, shape, or form! The families of these innocent people who have been snatched, must go through an awful lot torment, while hoping and praying that their loved ones be returned unharmed. Unfortunately the known statistics do not support them ever being returned safely back home. The poetry itself it a powerful reminder that we need to clamp down harder on these predators who roam or country, and our planet! It is really incredible that “modern technology” can create something as clear as what a person could resemble even ten years later, yet we cannot keep track of these released prisoners who constantly prey upon innocent people. An extremely heartfelt piece. Thanks for sharing it. Take good care and be well.

Sad days we are living in and we just don't seem to want to do anything about the bastards that are raping and killing the children. Shame of us.
