Missing child support services are designed to help everyone except the abducted child. Cases are closed once the kid is found; but for the child the trauma doesn’t disappear. Recovery is difficult yet little data on the impact of abduction has been collected from folks who actually experience it, and little help is available to them. Take Root uses the collected wisdom of former missing children to improve America’s missing-child response, adding important new data and perspective to public and policy discussions about child abduction. Every member of Take Root was once a missing child.
