Two years ago tonight my life was changed forever when my children were abducted to Japan by their mother. I have not heard their voices or seen their beautiful little faces since 9/9/09. I cannot adequately describe in words the pain that I have experienced since.
To my children’s mother: To deny your children the right to know and love their left behind parent is a particularly terrible form of child abuse. It is a primary responsibility of a parent to foster and promote a relationship with the other parent, unless that parent is abusive to the children. You know that was certainly not the case in our family. Wake up and do what is right for our children.
I have survived and will continue to fight for the human rights of my children until the day I die. I am undaunted and remain extremely resolute. I am stronger than even I knew.
Rion, Lauren, Julia: I love you and miss you every minute of every day. You will see me soon.
