I had a silly post all rolling around in my head for today; however I can’t get this missing 7 year old boy off my mind. The whole thing has made me sick to my stomach.
You can read Kyron’s story here if you have not already seen it on the news or the "Today show".
His story hits home with me in so many ways, I just want to puke.
Not only did this happen locally... but I have a 7 year old 2nd grader who some freak tried to nab at the post office when he was 2. (that’s a whole other story) Let’s just say if I ever saw that women they would have to scrap her remains off the street with a spoon.
Then there was the time my son didn't get off the school bus, what a horrid experince.
When my oldest son was in 2nd grade (what’s with these 2nd graders?) I stood waiting on the corner as the bus unloaded its kids and my son was not one of them.
After calling the school and then 911 I raced up to the school frantic with horrific thoughts going through my head.
Seeing dozens of police cruisers buzzing around knowing they were looking for my son is a sickening feeling to say the least.
It was 45 min before a bus driver called in to say she had picked him up walking home in the deep drainage ditch. The longest 45 min of my fricking life!
He was scared, scrapped up and bleeding from the ordeal but in one piece, I never cried so hard in front of so many people. Then I spent the next 20 min screaming at the teachers and school staff for not seeing a 7 year old boy wander off the school campus, not pretty.
The pain this family must be going thought is...gawd I can't even think of a word...I just pray they find him.
Over the weekend I’ve talked to my kids about Kyron, and going over again safety rules and stranger danger, stressing the importance of being smart. We continue to pray for Kyron's safe and speedy return to his family.
