Welcome to Seeker’s Road. I am so glad you have come to visit, and I hope you will find something of value here. As I begin this website, I am still packing for many journeys which will find their own places and pages here. At the top of this page you will see the index to the various pages on this site. Please, please be sure to visit my Blog page, where you can follow the adventures in the making.
Dear Michaela links to the blog I have kept for years for my daughter, Michaela, who was kidnapped on November 19, 1988, and has never been found. Regardless of statistics, there have been a number of abducted children and adults who have come home after having been captive for many years, so we know it happens, and in recent years I have received emails from Russia, Iran, and the United States that say she is alive, and in the United Arab Emirates. I have no specific information, because follow up contacts with these people have gone awry in various ways, so it is not something that can be actively investigated. All I can do is try to reach out to Michaela, and on the Dear Michaela website I have provided detailed information about how she can get help if she is in the UAE. Until it is proven that she is not alive, I will continue reaching out to her, because if she is alive I believe she needs me, and I hope that my words and my continuing love will reach her. And honestly, I write about her because I want to keep her alive in this world. The one thing I can say for certain about Michaela is that she was a bright and shining light when she was here, and her light has continued to shine since she has been gone. Many have been drawn to that light, and for me it has led my way. I would not be where I am without Michaela. I would not be who I am without Michaela. If this website is about seeking, about our journeys through life, Michaela has been the start of many of my paths, from being the one whose tiny hand first grasped mine and called me “mama,” to being the one who taught me the true ultimate cost of love.
But beyond that, I just want you to remember her.
Life is not without suffering. As I write this, California is burning. People are burying victims of the Las Vegas shooting. There are many trying to rebuild their lives after hurricanes. I myself am trying to rebuild my life having just completed treatment for Stage IIIC breast cancer. But the journey continues, in the sunshine or in the rain. Perhaps we can hold hands for awhile and walk together, lean when we are weak or lost, support each other when we are strong, or at least stronger.
Thank you again for just being here, and welcome. I hope you will stay.
Let’s fly, shall we?
