Saturday 12 May 2012


Losing my son on holiday for no more than five minutes was awful. Sheer panic set in and there were lots of tears when he was found. I can't begin to imagine what life would be like if we hadn't found him. The McCann's have to live with this pain every day of their lives. Everyone in the UK has their own theory on what happened that night and whether Madeleine should have been left alone in the hotel room. Every parent makes a mistake sometimes, but no one deserves to have their child taken away from them. The McCann's don't know if their daughter is alive. If she is alive they have no idea how she is being treated. I am not sure which idea is worse. Whatever your personal opinion, the fact is that Madeleine has never been found. That is why when I saw that @Amummysview and @teaandbiscotti were organising a blogging campagin to raise awareness about Madeline McCann, I felt I should take part.

Today 12th May 2012 is Madeline's 9th Birthday. Below is an age progression image to give people an idea of what she may look like now - five years on from when she went missing on holiday in Praia da Luz, Portugal on Thursday 3rd May 2007.

  1. thanks so much for sharing your post, I bet you were beside yourself when you briefly lost your little one. You are right that the McCann's despite what people think didn't deserve to have madeleine snatched from them. Thanks so much for supporting #blogging4madeleine. lets hope this is the year she comes home x
