One woman who read Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey, is an advocate for families of the missing and helps to educate others in the steps and things she has learned over the years. Laurie has built friendships, connections, and a tool box of blessings for families of the missing. Instead of letting the loss of her sister bring her down, she uses it to learn everything she can and help other families.
Laurie has posted Heidi's case and photos on a few different "missing persons" sites this week, as she looked at the age progression she shared it with a friend, Diana Trepkov. Diana, a international forensic artist - http://www.forensicsbydiana.com/, offered to do an updated age progression of Heidi!! Oh my gosh, we were overwhelmed and excited.
Praise God! The one listed online up until now was done through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), we've never complained because we didn't want to seem unappreciative of their services I looked into having one done but it is SOO pricy - And today because of one person reading Where's Heidi?, caring enough about Heidi and helping our family, reached out to a friend who was moved so much she offered to take on Heidi's case no charge
We spent numerous emails sending photographs and information back and forth, something I couldn't have done if I was traveling to or in Rome God is good. I miss seeing you all but grateful for the door God opened today. :) Thought you would enjoy hearing, and seeing, how God's working in our lives through the words written in my books.
Since receiving the age progression from Diana, it has been sent to NCMEC, the Doe Network, and other unidentified person databases. An important step to take to find a missing loved one.
Mom's first reaction..."Now that is my girl."
God is good...God Answers Prayer...There is always hope!
