#Blogging4Madeleine







I remember when I first saw the news about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.  As a mother it is hard to imagine anything more devastating happening to a family than the disappearance of a child.

Madeleine went missing from Praia De Luz, Portugal on Thursday the 3rd of May 2007.  It is hard to believe how long ago this was. Today is her 9th birthday.   

I'm sure a lot of people believe that after such a long period of time, she may never be found.  I don't see it that way. I have hope. I believe that actually there may be a higher likelihood of finding her than ever before.

Why do I believe this?  Madeleine at the age of 9, wherever she is in the world will most likely have access to a variety of media.  She may have access to a TV, a radio, a computer and newspapers.  By keeping her case in the media there is an increased chance that as she grows older she may stumble across the details of her own disappearance.  It has happened before. 

You may or may not be familiar with the case Carlina White in the USA who was kidnapped from hospital at just 19 days old. She had no memory of her real parents and was raised to believe she was the daughter of her kidnapper. As she grew older she began to suspect she was not the child of her so called mother. She began researching missing children and stumbled across details of her own case.  Carlina was eventually reunited with her parents after 23 years.  I truly believe this could happen in Madeleine's case too.

That is why it is so important to keep Madeleine's case in the public eye.  Wherever she is , regardless of the country or continent simply  keeping her image in the press increases the chances that someone may recognise her now, or that she may even recognise herself.  As individuals we can all  help. Simply emailing or sharing her picture and details of this campaign on social networking sites could make a huge difference. It takes only a few minutes.  So lets get this campaign off and running.  Lets get it trending on twitter, lets get it on the news and in the papers.  Below is all the information you will need to join in:

Below is the most current age progression image of Madeleine, it is a guide to how she may look now as a  9 year old.  Please share this image and the information given below with as many people as you can.  All the details you need to report any information or possible sighting of Madeleine is below.

Tour is always exciting and interesting. If it is night tour, it is more enjoyable. Night tour in new york city is really magical . The high line, a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s west side is mind blowing. New york’s night harbor cruise, with awesome views of New york’s unforgettable skyline as well as opportunities to take up-close and personal photos of status of liberty removes the monotonous of life. Anyone can see the beauty of Chinatown, soho and Green village by the luxurious coach. The tour will continue to gran central station and Rockefeller center which is exceptional for you. At last one can enjoy the sight of 50th street of New york city at night, you can’t believe your eyes. So everyone should go on a tour like New-york city in any age.
