This past Monday, Slam Dunks, blogger, shared about Heidi, her case, and the twentieth anniversary for his Missing Person Monday blog series. There were twenty comments the last time I checked, from across the country. Heidi is remembered near and far, praying this increased awareness of her case might help to reveal the missing puzzle piece to bring Heidi home.
Debra Groom, wrote a great story in today's edition of the Valley News. I learned new things while reading her article. It amazes me to still learn how different people learned of Heidi's disappearance or the face there were three feet signs on the Canadian border years after her kidnapping.

During my interview with Debra, she asked if I would write a story to run alongside her article, written from the family's perspective. I was, am honored, to be asked. I shared it with my parents before submitting it. I love the way God works and how our two stories meshed so well. Thank you Deb for the invite and sharing.

A little information about this blogger: "I am a thirty-something married sleep deprived Christian with little ones who uses this blog as an outlet. Growing up in a military family, I got to see a few different parts of the US. I am much more comfortable being in the South, but currently reside North of the Mason-Dixon Line. I spent almost a decade as the police and enjoy discussing law enforcement and crime."
