Drug and alcohol abuse can often be a factor in family tragedies. If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, considering looking into this drug rehab in San Francisco or the many other options available online.
Recent stories of long term abduction have flooded our current news. Everyone wants to know why children stay with their captor even when opportunity presents itself. The media scrambles to get expert and eye witness interviews. We place the child in front of a camera to get that smile of relief. We fail to look deeper and ask the real important questions. The young boy stands there confused and afraid. They have just been ripped from all they know, captivity. That is all about to change. In reading the life story of a former abducted child and revisiting one of the first national cases of child stealing in America, Throwing Stones; Parental Child Abduction Through the Eyes of a Child gives a dark narrative look into the life of a seven year old boy ripped from all he knows, and later returned to a life of hell at the age of eleven. His baby brother raised to hate a woman he was too young to know. His older sister consumed with her own inner turmoil turns violently on him. Left alone to find his own way he befriends anyone who will give him a sense of self worth. A peaceful and quiet child at the beginning; little Kenny learns to lie, steal and attack anyone who he thinks is a threat. Scared to trust anyone, Kenny goes inward to protect himself. Infected with an internal struggle to hold on to dying memories of a loving mother ripped from him, he gives in. After many lies, little Kenny starts to protect the man he fears most, his Father. Regardless of his outward environment, he finds hope and strength from within. Clear and sobering, this is long overdue. No other book has been written from the child's perspective concerning Child Theft. This case takes place before there was the National Center for the Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). His abduction was the first to involve a multi-state-manhunt and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Have You Seen My Mother?
“Have You Seen My Mother” is Bryan Lee McGlothin’s own personal life story of abduction by his father and his life long search for his mother. His search ended in September 1997 when he was finally brought to a tearful reunion with his mother after being apart for more than 30 years. Since this moving, heartwarming reunion, Bryan commenced a seven-year journey searching through dusty courthouse records across the country, analyzing old personal letters, and conducting many family interviews –cross-referencing stories, documents and photographs- with newly found family members from Tennessee to California to Washington State. These seven long, painful, heavy years of research have brought to light the lies and deceits of those who spun their web of treachery. After wading through accusations of child abuse, sexual abuse, and hired rapists, Bryan has finally put his story to paper and is ready to reveal his unbelievable account to our readers.
