Thank you

I just want to thank everybody for being patient. It is so long since I have been here, and the results of the most recent lead are in....  So I was really pleasantly surprised to see that there are still a good number of people who still come here, every day. Thank you.

As far as the case goes, I am continuing to receive information pointing to the UAE. Whether it is genuine or not, I don't know. I'd like to think people wouldn't play with me, but it is always possible that they could be mistaken. So I take it, hope for what is promised, but don't hold my breath.

I have started working on my book again. My kids and husband, under the leadership of my daughter Libby, got me an iPad for Christmas. I've got to tell you, I absolutely love this thing. I have recently found a great program for using Microsoft word on it, and it has enabled me to start working on the book. It's hard to explain, but working on the iPad is just such an intimate environment. I sit on the couch (with my little dog Spike cuddled next to me), and I write. I don't have to go somewhere, or turn anything on. But most of all is the sense of intimacy. It feels like writing in a journal.

Michaela, if you are out there, if you are one of the people who faithfully visits this page to see if I have written anything, please don't ever interpret my silence as having forgotten you. I will never do that. In these days that I have been writing, my heart has been wrapped up in you, remembering, just as it so often is. Just because the thoughts don't appear here on my blog doesn't mean they don't exist. I love you, forever, in all circumstances, with no conditions. I love you even if you read this and yet choose not to come home. I know you would have your own good reason. Just know that I will never stop wanting you. The room in my heart that you came to occupy on the day you were born is still yours. You are always in it,wherever you may be. If you are okay, that's all that matters. But if you are not safe, if you are suffering, please never give up looking for a way to break free and come home.

I love you forever, baby girl.


  1. Sharon, that was beautiful and made me cry. I still visit this page often to see if there's news of Michaela and to see how you're doing. So glad to hear that you're writing your book. Don't worry; Michaela, wherever she is, knows that you love her and will never forget her. That's crystal clear.


  2. I'm glad to hear from you. I always worry, when you don't post, that something has happened and I don't know about it. I don't have cable, satellite, or any of that stuff so, unless it's on Yahoo News, I'm not gonna know about it.

    Anyway, I'm happy to hear that you're doing well and I really really hope this UAE thing is genuine and leads you somewhere. I can only imagine how frustrating dead ends are, and I hope this isn't one.

    I look forward to hearing from you again. :)

  3. Sharon, I've heard about certain agencies that actually go into the UAE to find these childeren. I am not sure if they are private or run by the government/law enforcement. Maybe they would have more luck contacting the two people that said Michaela was there.

  4. I'm happy to know you're working on your book again.


  5. Praying that the new lead will give results.


    1. Hi Mrs Murch! Its Faith Rose.. Remember me??? Im back! Im really glad the bone sample proved to be someone else....Great news!! I'll be posting more!!!
      Love, Faith

      PS: Maybe this would help? I heard of a blog.... By a girl/lady named michaela. May just be a coincidence...but I hope you find michaela!


  6. Good Morning,Sharon. Hope all is well with you and your family. I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful writing soon. Take care.

  7. I have been thinking about how it is illegal there to distribute missing persons fliers. I found online an organization called the The Dubai Foundation for women and children. They have a location in the EAU. They offer assistance to victims of DV and human traficking both children and adults. I wonder if they would be willing to post the fliers in their offices. This might be somewhere Michaela would go for help or a another girl who knows Michaela.
