Throwing Stones; parental child abduction through the eyes of a child

Recent stories of long term abduction have flooded our current news. Everyone wants to know why children stay with their captor even when opportunity presents itself. The media scrambles to get expert and eye witness interviews. We place the child in front of a camera to get that smile of relief. We fail to look deeper and ask the real important questions. The young boy stands there confused and afraid. They have just been ripped from all they know, captivity. That is all about to change. In reading the life story of a former abducted child and revisiting one of the first national cases of child stealing in America, Throwing Stones; Parental Child Abduction Through the Eyes of a Child gives a dark narrative look into the life of a seven year old boy ripped from all he knows, and later returned to a life of hell at the age of eleven. His baby brother raised to hate a woman he was too young to know. His older sister consumed with her own inner turmoil turns violently on him. Left alone to find his own way he befriends anyone who will give him a sense of self worth. A peaceful and quiet child at the beginning; little Kenny learns to lie, steal and attack anyone who he thinks is a threat. Scared to trust anyone, Kenny goes inward to protect himself. Infected with an internal struggle to hold on to dying memories of a loving mother ripped from him, he gives in. After many lies, little Kenny starts to protect the man he fears most, his Father. Regardless of his outward environment, he finds hope and strength from within. Clear and sobering, this is long overdue. No other book has been written from the child's perspective concerning Child Theft. This case takes place before there was the National Center for the Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). His abduction was the first to involve a multi-state-manhunt and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. .


“Daddy, daddy put me down, help”. Screaming from deep inside my little body, “You’re hurting me Daddy please let me go”. My father was on top of me shoving my sister and I back into his van. The motor was running and after what he had done to the babysitter I was now terrified of the man I once trusted.
Minutes earlier, I would never have guessed how this day would end. If I had, I might have run away, far away…

Professional Reviews

An Important and sobering perspective
“Throwing Stones presents an important and sobering perspective on the issue of child abduction, offering unique insights into the terrible physical, emotional and psychological toll abduction inflicts on the innocent. Ken Connelly’s book is a must read for anyone wanting to learn about overcoming victimization, ultimately realizing the personal strength to triumph over adversity and help others heal from tragedy.” – New York State Assemblyman James N. Tedisco, co-author of Missing Children: A psychological approach to understanding the causes and c
onsequences of stranger and non-stranger abduction of children.

The Dirty Little Secret
Beth Alberts Ken has written an important book discussing our "dirty little secret" - that children are more often abducted by a parent, not a stranger. A parent who abducts a child in violation of a custody order does so out of revenge. The issue is power and control, with little concern for the child's best interests.

The issue of parental abduction has received very little attention in our country and it's time to bring this discussion out of the courtroom and into the public forum.
