    Very well said! I think that by getting to know Anna through those who knew her, Anna has touched all of our lives.

    You're welcome GraceBlue I'm not from the area, I just did some online research because I was curious about those monkeys. That does look like a nice area

    Welcome to WS and glad you were moved to post!

    I thought of Anna today, also of 'C', Anna's mom, Anna's bro, Joe, and Anna's Mom's bro. Years of uncertainity and now it is so close we can almost reach out and touch it. Waiting is so hard, you don't know whether to be glad or to guard yourself for the answer.
    My prayer was that something be known soon.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    WOW. Mjak, you know how to put it all into words. Thank you for saying what I know so many feel but just don't know how to type it out.

    While we wait for the results...

    Anna has touched many lives, even outside of this board and Myspace. My mom always has Anna in her prayers, and after I sent out the Christmas cards with Anna's picture in them, one of the recipients wrote me back that they were praying for Anna.

    As I sit here typing, I have "Here Comes the Sun" running through my head. I think there's a bit of Anna in all of us

    While waiting...

    I seem to go to bed at night, and I have Anna often as my last thought, and again I awake and at 5am, Anna, Annasmom, the whole entire scope of this continues to move me very deeply.
    My husband and I are in a search as well at this time, and the next step is to do DNA, but the results may or may not have someone to compare to, and even if they do, the person we are looking for, is most likely severely mentally impaired. Talking with all of you, and seeing Annasmoms amazing dignity and tact in this situation, is such a blessing to me at this time. I know this process can be done with dignity for all involved, and it gives me great hope that in the near future we may be able to do the same with DNA.
    Either way the results, there is a world full of people, with good hearts, that are pushing that universal energy of hope and love for this whole family and all their friends, we support you all, 100%, and thank you ALL, for putting yourselves out there publicly, as you are more of an inspiration than you may ever know!
    Blessings

    while waiting for DNA results

    Being a natural born pessimist, I have refrained from posting much over the last week. Nobody likes a downer...LOL Seriously though, please remember there is a 50% chance that "C" is not the same person as Anna. The odds are about the same as flipping a coin. Getting to high of hopes often leads to debilitating depression after a let down. I pray that "C" is Anna as are the rest of you, but my pessimist gut says no. It's highly unlikely they are one in the same. I'll gladly eat my hat if I am wrong.

    off topic- similar story (current)

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,269418,00.html

    a 3 year old girl dissappeared from her home and is suspected to have drown in a river.

    so similar to how things began for Annasmom. I know this doesn't really belong in this forum, but I thought this little girl (and her mom!) could use all the prayers she can get.

    Your post sounds an awful lot like the pragmatic side of my personality. It has taken a lot for me to override my natural tendency to remain in control of my emotions, but you are correct that the possibility remains that C is not Anna. I believe that she is Anna, but I could be wrong.

    How sad. It sounds in this case, that the little girl did end up in the river since two of her boots were found in the river.

    Children being able to manuever doors, getting out of the house, getting into cars always scares me. I'm also amazed in this day and age when people are still comfortable leaving their doors unlocked.

    Prayers sent for this little girl and her family.

    Gosh. Thats so sad. My cousin drowned when he was 2 back in 1985. His parents owned a sailboat down in the Virgin Islands and they were busy doing something and he fell off and drowned. The whole thing was horrible. My aunt never recovered from her son's death, neither did her older son. Her husband was a piece, of you-know-what, he didnt even go to the baby's funeral!

I do not know if this is anything, but we are taking this picture in to show "C" at work, because it looks just like her. I will let you know if it turns out to be anything. The age progression picture looks like her, but I don't see her in the younger pictures. Also, the woman that we know is 40, a waitress with "?" children, a really nice person, but she has dark hair, like a very dark brown. I will let you know what "C" says after dinner with her tomorrow. I believe it is primarily the smile that made us both think of "C".

    Will write soon, and thinking of you,
    Robin
    I remember when you first emailed me about Robin and C on MySpace. It was exactly 6 months ago today.

    Hello all,
    I have been reading Anna's story from the time it was posted here on WS.
    Although I have never posted here.
    All of the key players here have been an inspiration to me.
    Patience, Trust & Faith is what I have learned from this thread.
    God bless you all, My prayers are with you.

    Weeding my garden in between checking in here... While,praying for the best news for you all, everytime I have to kneel for something!

    You have just described how a lot of us been feeling for weeks. Glad to hear C is having a great day. We all hope she continues to have these days no matter what the results are.

    Yes, my son has been going on for what seems like months. He has school tomorrow, but Saturday is his Birthday so we're gonna bring cup cakes to his class after lunch and then we're going to check him out for the rest of the day so we can take him to the movie. I'm so excited for him!
    You won't cry for my absence, I know -
    You forgot me long ago. Am I that unimportant...?
    Am I so insignificant...? Isn't something missing?
    Isn't someone missing me?
