Tip of the Day: If You Are a Parent or Have Children in Your Extended Family…Please Read This!

Child exploitation is a subject that has affected me personally for two reasons:

1. In 1975, our family of four lived in Silver Spring, MD. 

Katherine Lyon, 10, and Sheila Lyon, 12, older than our daughters, belonged to parents who resided directly behind us were abducted while visiting the Wheaton Mall just a mile away. 

For information on this child abduction, please see the below link:

These girls remain missing to THIS DAY. Our hearts go out to the anguish this family has experienced for decades; and

2. My youngest daughter, Jennifer, is a long-term senior manager with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (http://www.ncmec.org). 

I am so very proud of Jen for the children she has saved and protected during her career at NCMEC. 

If you have children in your extended family, please review the below link very carefully:
