    Mom and abducted child reunited~through facebook

    'I've not seen my mother since I was three. I do not know anything about her, but I would like to ...'

    After being 'kidnapped' as a child, Gavin Paros found his family after leaving this note on a website...(facebook)

    ...Some 25 years earlier, Gavin had said goodbye to his mother, Avril Grube, for what both believed would be a weekend trip to Blackpool with his father, Joseph Paros. The mother and son did not see each other again. Instead of returning the boy to Liverpool, Joseph "kidnapped" his son to his native Hungary and severed all links with his estranged wife...

    ...Gavin, who celebrates his 30th birthday today, has been speaking to his mother through translation software, meaning conversations postponed for 27 years are taking hours to complete...
    A lot more at the link. This is such a lovely story. I'm so glad they are reunited now.
