Our saves are a big deal. People ask us how we do it. There’s no secret sauce. They’re a result of people joining forces and taking action together. Public demand works for Civil Liberties, Human Rights, and Children’s Rights too.
Rainbird saves a North Dakota boy who was kidnapped
In June, 2013, a father with a history of violence and a police record took his 5-year old son for vacation visitation. A week before he was scheduled to bring the boy home to the mother - who had sole custody - the father told the mother she would never see her son again. The father went on the run and the mother spent the next two years searching across the U.S. for her son. The police and courts in three states refused to help her. At the end of her rope, she called us. For the next two weeks we worked with her and on September 29, 2015, she found her son. Scared to death and out of money, she borrowed $1,800 for two tickets, a rental car, and two nights in a motel. On October 8th, she flew to California and on October 9th, after being denied a police escort to help get her son, she went to the school alone, picked up her boy, and flew home. The process was terrifying, but the now 7-year old boy is home, back in school, and settling in with his family.
