Save the Dates: for the Next Mothers of Lost Children Demonstration in Washington DC

28 Jul

Save the Dates: Tuesday October 1 and Wednesday October 2, 2013 will be the next Mothers of Lost Children White House demonstration and National Safe Child Coalition lobbying day in Washington DC.  Thanks to National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Congress has declared October 1 National Safe Child Day. We hope you can join us. Mothers of Lost Children will provide t shirts. If you are not able to come to Washington, it would be great to organize a demonstration at your local Legislature or your Family Court House.

For Mothers of ‘Lost’ Children
by Robin Karr

It’s impossible to know that your child is still OK
To protect your child was your job, so you think you failed in every way
When your child is no longer with you and still so very young
You can’t help but think there must more you could have done
You turn the music up and sob while in your car and the shower hides your tears
You know you can’t survive this kind of loss another day, another month, another year
Yet, the years go by and you realize you’re still alone
Although you did all you knew and could, your child did not come home
The child you carried and brought into this world has gone away
There’s nothing left to do but pray and pray and pray
How evil are those who desire nothing more than to destroy the mother-child bond
You continue to seek justice, but the gutwrenching pain goes on and on
No matter how huge the loss, you have no choice but to start another day
Without your child that gave your life meaning in every way
You lie down at night and think of your child and feel so all alone
There is nothing in this world you want more than for your child to just come home.
