When Your Child Goes Missing.... April 13, 2007 12:32 PM

Get your children professionally photographed, if you can. If not, take a really good picture yourself that shows their faces clearly. I work for a police department, and I can tell you that sometimes that's the very best asset if something happens to your child. The same goes for your parents, siblings and spouse. It ISN'T just children who go missing. I suggest doing the same with your pets-also ask your vet about getting them microchipped, so you can get them back if they get lost. http://www.ncmec.org/missingkids/servlet/PageServlet?LanguageCountry=en_US&PageId=2356 PLEASE consider going to the site above for more information.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Thank you for this important information! This is something we just don't think about - don't think it could happen - should we still get our children fingerprinted - that is something that was emphasized at our elementary school - things change so quickly - We need to do whatever is best for our kids!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Fingerprinting April 13, 2007 10:12 PM

Fingerprinting is NEVER a bad idea, along with finding out their blood type. But most important are those photos. In the best-case scenerio, you have wonderful photos of your kids, spouse and parents (each needs to be photographed individually with a plain background). Worst-case...they can be your best chance of getting them home. Some parents have a portfolio for each child containing info like: a clear photo fingerprints blood type, medical history, and list of medications a lock of hair (for DNA) a note about any scars, birthmarks, moles, etc. These things are important because when something does happen, you're not able to think of these things, because you're upset, hysterical. You can keep the portfolio (a folder is all you need) at home in a safe or in a safety deposit box, or where ever you want. Just remember to update the information every 6 months for a young child and every year for an older child or adult.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
