Rescue of Shannon Sykes

Some people say the best day of their life was their wedding day or the birth of their children. Those were great days for me as well, but if I was to choose the absolute best day of my life it would have to be December 4, 2003. Thursday, December 4, 2003 was the day I was reunited with my abducted daughter. I 100% believe that without ARC I would still not have my Shannon back. ARC gave me my life back, and my reason for living.

Rescue of Sheena Vasquez:
Rescue of Ashley Ricks:

If the time comes when we need to physically go in and get the child we will work with the best organization available. The Association for the Recovery of Children (ARC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the recovery of missing or exploited children, foreign and domestic. ARC has a 100% success great. It is also the group that helped me retrieve my daughter from the Philippines. The planning for the extracting took about nine-months, but ultimately we were successful. Rest assured you will have the best group working for you if this route does need to be taken. The ARC did not charge me any money, but I did have to cover my own expenses. The S.A.F.E Home will help cover the cost for the extraction of the situation comes down to that point.

ARC is the worthy foundation of my friend, Bazzel Baz. I will support his mission to rescue kidnapped children for the rest of my life… I’m forever thankful for the day Baz asked me one very simple, life-changing question; “so what are you going to do about that?”

Hey Baz! Hope your week is going well and that you aren’t too overloaded with the craziness going on in the Middle East. You are on my heart & in my prayers!
I really wrote b/c I haven’t had a chance to tell you that I got to see the documentary about Tiffany Rubin’s son’s rescue. I loved getting to see you in action, and (as if I wasn’t already convinced that I would want you on my team when stink hits the fan) I definitely would call in the “Baz squad” during a crisis. What you do is absolutely amazing, and I feel honored to know you!

Very respectfully,

Much love, ~Heidi
