"better than winning the lottery. . . "

- that's what the officers said who found Ben and Shawn in MO. I was so happy for my eldest to hear that. Money can only bring superficial happiness - an instant high that doesn't last. Kind of like a drug that only keeps you searching for more day in and day out. What a reminder! That deep elation that they must have felt when they received the call that not only had they found the boy who had been missing for 4 days, but they found with him another boy who had been missing for 4 years. I can only imagine.

It is truly a miracle - I can't stop thinking about it.

If you are overseas, you may want to search the web for the story. It will really make your day.

it's amazing, but heartbreaking at the same time.. I work in law enforcement and my husband says i am way too paranoid, but I think in this day and age you can't be paranoid enough.

I agree with the poster above me, you can't be too paranoid. This isn't 1981 when I used to ride my bike down to the 7-11 while my parents were at work. I never let mine out of my sight.

I am too emotional to watch too many details of the story but it is a miracle. I think Oprah is about it today.

Jenni,

I live about 30 minutes from Kirkwood where the boys were found. So glad this story has touched people outside of the St. Louis area. I, too, can't stop thinking about it.

Thanks for sharing.
