Their pain, the thoughts, its unimaginable. Y’all shouldn’t be so quick to place judgement. There should be no bashing one or the other. There should be praying ! There should be seeking ! We hope to find this precious baby soon! We want him home, & we want him home safely. PLEASE continue to pray for this baby. I pray God wraps his arms around him & protects him every second of these days. I pray that God leads our searchers in the right direction. We want our baby Kenny home, & were not giving up.
