Yesterday was the first birthday of Lisa Irwin, the Kansas City baby who has been missing since October 4th. After some delay, Lisa’s brothers were finally interviewed by the FBI on Thursday afternoon, and the family reportedly held a small gathering in honor of the missing child on Friday morning.
Well-wishers from around the country took the opportunity Friday to show their support for Lisa’s safe return by baking an array of birthday cakes for the girl and sharing photos of them on Facebook. Some of the cakes, pictured below with accompanying notes to Lisa, were made by mothers who encouraged their own small children to help and pray for the safe return of a child they’ll likely never meet.
I only hope that as many people are praying for the safe return of lesser-known children like 5-year-old Jahessye Shockley – who is still missing – and who go missing every day without nearly as much media attention.
