Many parents have had the moment of paralyzing fear when we look around and can’t find our child. Maybe they are hiding behind a shelf, they forgot to keep up, they got distracted, they are talking to a friend…or maybe they just became one of the 800,000 children that go missing each year.

I have had those scary moments with each of my children. I was lucky each time, they were nearby. Even though they are getting older, I still worry. My daughter tends to grab other people’s hands thinking that they are me and she could very easily walk off with one of them. When we are at one of his school functions, my son tends to run off to say hi to his friends. Those simple seconds they are gone are so precious, because the scary reality is that Law Enforcement Agencies have revealed that the first 3 hours of a missing child case are the most important. Three hours. Not very long when you think how far a car can get in that time.

At every public event we have gone to, such as KidSpree or a community event, I have taken the kids to the fingerprinting booth so that I have them and they are tucked in a safe spot “just in case”. These days, though, with the technology as advanced as it is, there is so much more that we can do to save valuable time in those three hours. Typically when a child goes missing, the police will need to go to the child’s home and collect something with DNA evidence on it and then send it to the laboratory to start a profile. A DNA profile is a Genetic Fingerprint and every person’s is unique. If we had this DNA profile on hand, the police would not have to take the time to go to the house and wait for the results.


ChildProtect by DNA is provided by DNA Diagnostics Center, which is the largest private DNA company in the world and the #1 hospital recommended in the US. ChildProtect provides the DNA profile that the police will need. The Diagnostics Center is extremely thorough and detailed, and every profile is signed by a PhD when it leaves the laboratory and goes to the safety of a parent’s files. Years ago a DNA profile like this would cost over $400. With the leaps in technology, it is now available for only $99, and even better, you can get the profile for YOUR child for only $49! Get a limited time $50 off coupon by going to and using code USFamily50.

**I will be receiving a profile for one of my children as well so that I can review it for you! Keep a lookout for that review!**
