About our theme:

The current social and political climate is rife with division, partisanship and acrimony. Our imperative is to build bridges between families, governments and nations for family reunifications. Our ‘same page’ strategy means that our love, loyalty and labors for America’s Stolen Children must be Undivided--- and this is our conference theme.

  • Our love and devotion for our children is UNDIVIDED.
  • Our resolve to reunite with our children is UNDIVIDED.
  • Our determination to seek justice for children and families is UNDIVIDED.
  • Our mission to end International Parental Child Abduction is UNDIVIDED.
