Still a mom?

My only child vanished in '04. He was 14. Registered with the Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the Polly Class Foundation. I'm still a mom, I think. My own mother gives me little gifts on mothers' day. Makes me cry. I miss him. He would be 19yo now. Wondering if there are any other moms out there who are going through this. Or grandparents. Would like to talk/chat.

  • You should post the link to your child's missing info- there are so many people on here from all over- you never know, someone could have seen something! It would be great if we could help you out!

    But back to your question, still a Mom, always a Mom!

  • Oh mom you are still a mom because you have a child. It doesn't matter where where at all your child is. I am not in your position. I join you in prayer for your son's safety and being found.

  • hugsI can't imagine the hurt you must feel over your loss. Of course you are still a mom. I usually have words of wisdom but am at a loss so am just going to send a hug.

  • Everyone who responded, I thank you so much for your prayers. A mother knows when something is wrong. In 2004, I couldn't feel him anymore. My mom couldn't either. I raised him 8 years, mom and dad raised him the next eight. I miss him. July 27th will be five years. He is a cold case. Detectives consider this a homicide.
    If you want to look, his name is Shelby Raistlin Wright. The Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Also on the Polly Klaas foundation. Perverted justice also had him on.
    One way or another, I was promised by the Lord, that I will see him again. As he was, when he walked out of my life and so many others.
    I thank you so much for your prayers. Just want him back.

    One way on the other.

  • I thank you all for your thoughts and your prayers. I think I kind of lost it in reading them. Wish he was here.
