Happy Thanksgiving! Remember What You Are Thankful For…

Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving!

I’m going to take a moment to shove an old cliche down your throat.  While you are stuffing your face this holiday weekend, take a moment to remember what you are truly thankful for.  For most of us, this means being able to celebrate with our family, friends and also, our children.

For my friend, Peter, taking a day for granted with his son is not an option.  If you’ve been following this blog, you’ve read previous posts dedicated to the work and efforts of this remarkable individual here and here.

Because of his own experience with his son, Peter has dedicated an incredible amount of his life fighting against International Parental Child Abduction.  His foundation, outlined below, works tirelessly not only to bring home children who have been abducted by their own parents, but to prevent abductions from occurring in the first place.

In order to educate other parents, Peter has produced a documentary film series that I am proud to share on behalf of Mr. Senese below.  Please take the time to view these videos, because our kids – our families – are what we’re thankful for this weekend, and every weekend.


 Peter Thomas Senese & the I CARE Foundation
Release Educational Film Series on International Child Abduction Prevention
Every Parent Is Suggested To View
As Parental Abduction Cases Dramatically Increase
In his capacity as a best-selling author producer, child advocate, and founding director of the I CARE FoundationPeter Thomas Senese has shared that in order to stop international  parental child kidnapping, raising awareness and providing accurate information to others is critical.

In order to help other parents protect targeted children Mr. Senese has created the ‘Chasing Parents’ educational documentary film series that is shared here.

With 125,000 American and 20,000 Canadian children anticipated to be internationally abducted over the next decade, parents must realize that they are only 3 degrees of separation from having this impact their life.

Peter Thomas Senese is the author of the critically acclaimed novel Chasing The Cyclone that shares a story of a parent’s dedication to his child.  Along with Mr. Senese’s ongoing financial support to help targeted children of abduction, Peter Thomas Senese continues to donate 100% of his book proceeds to the I CARE Foundation.

International parental child abduction is a serious issue that we all need to be aware of.  Please take the time to educate yourself.

  1. Dear Lyndsay,
    On behalf of the I CARE Foundation, I would llike to thank you for sharing such an important article about the growing issues of international parental child abduction. The reality is that hundreds of thousands of unsuspecting families are targeted for this crime, and when it occurs, very few children actually are returned home. Preventing IPCA is critical.

    Clearly, in order to combat international child abdution, it is vital that parents become informed of the risk factors and issues at hand. And there is no denying that wonderful parenting writers like yourself hold the key to this education and awareness. You are at the battlefront of this fight to protect innocent children.

    Again – thank you!

    Having known best-selling author Peter Thomas Senese for nearly two decades, and having worked side by side with him at the I CARE Foundation as the self-funded non-profit organization continues to help parents of abduction, Peter’s understanding of the issues of IPCA ore extraordinary. The videos you shared created by him will make a big difference for those in need.

    I was there when Peter’s child was abducted and was part of the team as he successfully navigated the Hague Convention. From that time, I knew that he would try to make a difference, and there is no question that he, through his dedication to the I CARE Foundation, has done that.

    In fact, this is a blog I shared about some of Peter Thomas Senese’s incredible giving: http://newyorkattorneyjoelwalter.blogspot.com/2012/09/author-peter-thomas-senese-makes.html

    On behalf of the I CARE Foundation, we thank you for sharing this very important message.
