"God Bless you! My mom contacted me to say that my daughter Ashleigh Porter was in Ebony magazine. I was so glad that my missing child was given the opportunity to this type of exposure. It has been so hard. She went missing on April 20, 2009. I agree totally that law enforcement and the media in some instances do us no justice. I knew nothing of your organization prior to this, but I'll know more now. You have given me a great service and I feel indebted to you. I do not want people to forget about my Ashleigh. Thank you again and bless your hearts for starting this organization."
