Why are we here?

This is to ask the age old question.

We are here because God put us here, and sometimes, while we are here, things happen that don't seem right. Things like having someone you love mysteriously vanish without a trace.

That is what happened to us. It was more than four years ago, and to this day, we do not have a clue as to what happened to our son, Jason.

He's gone. I didn't get to say goodbye to him and give him one last hug. I don't get to hear his voice on the phone and I don't get to write him a letter that I know he will read. There is just emptiness, heartache, and fear that doesn't go away.

We decided that we could not sit back and do nothing. We had to share what we learned about having a missing loved one with the world. We were given our marching orders from Above whether we liked it or not.

And march on we did. We passed a law in our state called Jason's Law which establishes a full service missing person's clearinghouse. We also started a nonprofit organization to assist families of the missing, which is Project Jason.

In these writings, I will share the day to day happenings within our organization, and the stories of the missing. There is, unfortunately, a never-ending supply of these stories.You will laugh and you will cry. You will also never forget what you read here.
