Year-end review

‘Gratitude makes us feel bursting with delight, just to remember the gifts we have received. Thus we are doubly blessed when we receive something–for the gift itself and later, in recall, for the miracle of having been given it.”    M.J. Ryan

As the year slowly draws to an end, our thoughts turn with deep gratitude towards all our generous donors, supporters and community partners for the prominent role you have played in our successes over the past year.

Without your generous support, the Missing Children’s Network would simply not exist and we would not have been able to accomplish the following:

  • Assist enforcement in the recovery of 114 missing children;
  • Provide 1 022 parents with crisis intervention and counselling;
  • Increase the personal safety of 6 745 children and teens through our Together for Safety workshops;
  • Launch SHINE, an education program aimed at preventing runaways and sexual exploitation;
  • Underline important sensitization campaigns; Safer Internet Day (February); Autism Awareness (April); National Missing Children’s Day (May) and Prevention of Runaways (November);
  • Train law enforcement on the subject of international parental abduction;
  • Advocate for and raise awareness about issues relating to missing and exploited children;
  • Continue to provide hope to dozens of searching families.

Your support means the world to us! From our home to yours, we wish you all a truly Joyous Holiday Season, filled with happiness, good health and peace.

Heartfelt words of gratitude

An American woman wrote to us the morning of March 29th to thank us for the help that we provided her with 19 years-ago when she was reunited with her son. Her kind words were for our Senior Case Manager, Patrick Bergeron:

“Hi Patrick,

It was wonderful speaking with you today.  When I think of you, I am filled with gratitude that you were there for me and Sam when we needed you most.  Thank you for what you did for us and thank you for everything you do for missing children and their families.  You are a giant among men.”

This kind of testimony motivates our team to continue its quest to reunite families with their children!


Mother of Sam, missing child recovered on March 29, 1998

Since I have been donating to your organization, I have been very lucky not to have lost any of my children and I now have 4 grandchildren!  I will always continue to support this cause that is very dear to me. Losing a child for a mere 20 seconds is such a dreadful feeling, and I could never ever imagine feeling like this until my child was returned home.  I wish that so many other parents could share the same blessing I have had. My heart goes out to everyone who has a missing child. Keep up the fantastic work Pina , please. You and your team are amazing!!
