For Mother’s Day this year, I sent my mother flowers because I could not be with her to celebrate. All over the country, moms received cards and gifts, sat down for Sunday brunch, and felt the love and joy that comes with being a mother. However, there are many other mothers who like mine, could not be with their children, but for very different reasons.
In 1983, President Ronald Reagan declared May 25 National Missing Children Day. The day is meant to highlight the importance of parents securing high-quality images of their children and to remind the broader public of the importance of amber alerts. Here at CLINIC, we see this day as an opportunity to highlight another group of children that gets lost in our society.
