I cannot even FATHOM the fear...

of having a missing child. One of my friends is living that fear right now.

I "met" Pam on a messageboard for women who were pregnant with babies due in July, 1999 on ivillage. Her sarcastic, dry humour always brought a smile to my face. She lives in Arizona.

I had the pleasure of meeting Pam in 2001 when Hubster and I went to Las Vegas. She met us on the corner where MGM Grand sits and as I type this, I can see her walking towards us with her then boyfriend, Brad. I was SO excited to meet her and she did not disappoint. We spent the afternoon together, laughing, gambling and getting to know each other. We promised that we would meet again.

And we did. This time, at "Niagara Follies", a get-together for a whole bunch of the July 99'rs. I think it was in the summer of 2003. I felt like we were old friends, and really, we were.

We have long since moved on from that wonderful messageboard, but most of us have kept in touch in one way or another...through other messageboards, emails and of course, through Facebook.

This morning, I woke up and logged onto Facebook, just like every other morning...but this morning, Pam's status line was the first one I saw..."Bradley took off. He wasn't in school today. He never came home. He does not have his meds with him. The police are looking for him" My heart skipped a beat and I felt physically sick. It has now been over 36 houra and he is nowhere to be found. Pam must be beside herself with worry.

Please, if you pray, pray that Bradley will be found safe and SOON. No mother should ever have to deal with what Pam is dealing with. Pin It
