The Day I Lost My Child
“JAYDEN!” I yell. My heart is pounding in my ears and I barely register how loud I’m screaming. My feet are moving, but not fast enough. My eyes are darting up and down the aisles, searching through a tangle of people and vendor booths.
It was perhaps a few minutes since I saw him last, but it felt like a lifetime. I’ll never forget how it felt. He was only three years old and lost in one of the worst possible places, a large crowded county fair.
I thank God that fear had paralyzed him and he simply stood in the last place he was with our group. It made it much easier to find him, standing there looking fearfully for his Mama.
Kids With Special Needs
Every Mom will know this moment at least once in her lifetime and no mom could ever forget the fear that chokes you when it does. If you have a child on the Autism spectrum or who has a natural tendency to wander or sleep walk, you might feel this moment many times over.
My heart goes out to you Mamas, for whom this fear might become a normal occurrence, but it doesn’t have to. I interviewed a mom not long ago and she shared the fear and frustration she feels when her son with Autism tries to wander away.
GPS Tracking System Easily Let’s Parents See Where Their Kids Are
She has a GPS ankle bracelet tracking device that monitors his whereabouts if he wanders. It’s through her local Sheriff’s Department. It gives her peace of mind, but not everyone can easily become a part of this program.
When I heard about AngelSense, I knew it was a product I wanted to share with people. Parents of children with special needs, those whose children are prone to wandering, or even those who are worried about their kids being bullied should hear about AngelSense.
Monitor Your Child In Real Time And Get Alerts On Your Phone
AngelSense is a discreet tracking device the size of a pager that slips inside a child’s clothes and sends a signal to your cell phone. Easily see where your child is at all times, and get alerts sent straight to your phone if your child isn’t where he or she is supposed to be. It also has a listen in feature so you can hear if they are in trouble or being bullied, which is especially helpful for children who are non-verbal and can’t tell their parents what is happening.
I wish I had AngelSense that day years ago when I lost my son. I think of all the things that could have gone wrong had I not found him right away. A child predator could have easily walked off with him and I might never have seen him again. It’s not something any parent wants to imagine, but all children (whether they have special needs or not) get lost or wander off once in a while.
I spent many years working for a non-profit organization that helps children and adults with disabilities. I interviewed many parents for articles and got to watch some of the kids grow up over the years. One thing is always clear. These are some of the strongest parents I’ve ever met. I’ve also seen the toll it takes on them; the constant worrying about protecting their children. If a product like AngelSense could give them a little peace of mind, then it’s well worth it.
We’ll all lose our child at least once in our lifetime, but we pray that we find them quickly. We all want our children to be safe, but we can’t watch them every single second. At least we couldn’t until now.
AngelSense has a limited time 40% off sale going on right now on both the Guardian package, which includes all the equipment you need and the monthly monitoring service. Check it out.
