For 1 year, Donnell tried to find his 10-year-old son, who had been taken by the boy's mother. Almost immediately after his case was opened Child Find located them. Donnell wrote to his Child Find caseworker:
"The opportunity to see my son was priceless. I believe with all my heart...that opportunity was because of Child Find of America. There is no doubt in my mind that if it were not for your office a void in the lives of both my son and I, would never be filled.
There isn't any way possible to repay someone who has saved your life...Child Find of America has saved our lives. If anyone thinks that this is an exaggerated statement it is because they've never had a child abducted. It is the worst thing imaginable. Thank you...for giving us peace." - Donnell R. New York, NY
