Happy Mother's Day

This Mother's Day, many people will think about the loss of their child by kidnapping - even by the other biological parent - when a child goes missing and no one has the answers. Sometimes those answers are not what we want to hear, but every once in a while, we have the happy ending I would tack onto every scenario if I had written this program. Many in Cleveland will celebrate this year and I am so happy for them. I hope you enjoy your day. I'm off to NJ to be with my daughters and their children.

'Best Mother's Day' ever for mother of freed Cleveland captive   Reuters - May 12, 2013
The mother of Gina DeJesus is celebrating the "best Mother's Day" ever on Sunday after her daughter was freed with three other captives last week from a long imprisonment in a Cleveland home. DeJesus, 23, Amanda Berry, 27, and Berry's 6-year-old daughter were welcomed into their family homes last week after an escape and rescue on Monday from the dungeon-like house.

It took a leap of faith for the women to escape their captors and they got lucky.
