First of all I’d like to say Happy Mother’s Day to our daughter Nadia who went missing on 3 November 2008 in Homewood, Alabama. At the time of her disappearance Nadia left behind her then one year old son Christopher. Since then he has been separated from us. As his family we are committed to Nadia and him to do all we can to ensure his safety and welfare. We ask if anyone has any information about Christopher and how he is doing to contact us throught this website or the Alabama Department of Human Resources.
Nadia was so dedicated to her son. She loved him so much! We spoke with her about him several times a week either by email or phone. I remember her saying, “I’m raising him just like you raised me mom!” Those words touched my heart and still do for I know Nadia was doing all she could to be the best mom she knew how to be. She adored Christopher and sought to provide him with a stable homelife. We were so proud of her. She talked a lot about moving home with Christopher and so we planned for them to come in November 2008. We were so excited we were going to see them!! She talked to her brother John about playing games and going out to the movies. She wanted to “babysit” him because she said, “I want to give you and Pop a night out together.” That was just like her. She was so thoughtful of others, giving and giving from her heart. Thinking back on those memories reminds me of how proud I am of her.
Because at the time we lived just outside Washington DC, Nadia wanted to take the short trip to Connecticut to see her grandma…she missed her and wanted to tell her in person how much she loved her. Remembering our conversation tugs at my heart and once again brings about the pain of missing her. She never did get a chance to come home to us. She never had an opportunity to tell her grandma how much she loved her. Our grandson Christopher never had an oppportunity to meet Nadia’s grandma and to get to know her.
To Nadia, Happy Mother’s Day!! We miss you terribly! We are committed to you and we will do all we can to protect your “little man” (as she would call him) from the darkness of this world.
As mothers many of you can relate to wanting to protect your children and your family. So once again, I ask if you are aware of any information regarding Nadia’s disappearance or our grandson’s situation and/or wellbeing please let us know.
We wish everyone a wonderful Mother’s Day and ask you not to forget Nadia and her son Christopher as you celebrate the moment.
