Concerned Citizens Mark Missing Baby Lisa Irwin's 1st Birthday with Cakes

Amanda Jones sent a message to Baby Lisa: "Happy first birthday, baby girl! May God light your way until you make it home safely."

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.

    Lisa and her family are in our thoughts. Hopefully a year from now, she will be back at home full of cake and playing with her new toys with her brothers.

    Seeing how happy Lisa was in one particular photo, all dressed up in necklaces, inspired me to make this cake. If the person who took her is reading any of our posts, please find it in your heart to bring her home. She's just a baby and needs her mom and dad.

    It is a little messy, but 5 little boys made this cake for Baby Lisa with a lot of love. We light a candle for you every night. Come home soon, baby girl.

    Happy first birthday Baby Lisa. I pray everyday that you are safe and with someone who loves you and is taking care of you. I pray that you will be found soon. My kids and I baked a cake for you tonight. I hope that wherever you are, you are able to celebrate this day. I don't know you, but somehow I love you.

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.
