I was unfamiliar with parental alienation until it happened to me. I had no idea how much great stuff was in this book and I want everyone to go out and buy it. I wish it had been around for me years ago. With every page there will be people hanging on to hope, knowing that it happened to someone else, they can get through it. When I first became a victim, I was looking for answers and there was no playbook, now I have a resource to point people to. -Dr. Carlos Rivera
I have already started sharing this book with multiple PA groups with which I am actively involved. Thank you for writing this book. -M.H.
One of my favorite parts was: "...Or, you can take this pain, that was thrust upon you, to propel you into greatness..." Absolutely love it! While this book is for parents of missing children, it has really lifted my spirits! So encouraging. -C.S.
I never had a missing child. However, this book has inspired me and I know that the contents will be a great inspiration to all parents who have lost children. Get the book for someone who has lost a child. You will be glad you did. -B.M.
This book is about "missing children" like The Hiding Place is about the holocaust. It's really a story about God's power in the worst situations. -N.B.

Strength for Parents of Missing Children: Surviving Divorce, Abduction, Runaways and Foster Care by Marie White is a self-help and spiritual guide for parents, guardians, and loved ones of children who have been removed from their lives under a variety of circumstances. White's book details her personal journey and struggles while offering insight on how she was and is able to deal with a situation that most cannot even comprehend. With the use of scriptures and stories, White weaves empathy and hope throughout the book in a way that only a parent who can relate to the devastation of losing a child themselves could.
In the interests of full disclosure, I believe it is important for me to state that I am a foster parent myself. The children who come in and out of my life have their own issues and grief to contend with, which ultimately becomes mine. Initially, it was easy for me to blame a parent who lost their child or children to the system. Over time, with the assistance and guidance of social workers, child psychologists, and interaction with the children's parents (through contact, which some children receive), my viewpoint changed. At this juncture of my own journey, Strength for Parents of Missing Children: Surviving Divorce, Abduction, Runaways and Foster Care by Marie White is a guide that is sorely needed. It's beautifully composed and written without judgement and - most importantly - without suspicion that the situation is due to fault on the part of a parent. All reassurance given is in the form of God's plan... His plan for you, His plan for us, and His plan for the child. Even as a non-Christian, I found solace in what White provided and will keep this book on hand as a reference if and when I am ever in doubt again. Highly recommended.
