191: Strength for Parents of Missing Children: Surviving Abduction & Discovering Your Resilience


The loss of a child is one of the most unimaginable experiences a parent can go through. And that’s exactly what happened to Marie White. Three and a half years ago, her toddler was abducted. As of this writing, her child is still missing. This tragic occurrence is more common than you might think, in fact, 800,000 children are reported missing each year in the United States – that’s roughly 2,000 per day. This can destroy families, lead to failed marriages and often lead to suicide.


But today’s interview is a tale of resilience.


Marie has not seen her child in almost four years. And yet, instead of sinking into despair, Marie turned her pain into her purpose. Noticing that there were no resources to help people like her, she decided to be a beacon of light for parents who had lost their child, whether through divorce, illness, or abduction. She started a YouTube channel and has written five books dedicated to helping parents back to strength after trauma, including the best seller Strength for Parents of Missing Children.
