We honor Jacob, and celebrate the release of this important book with Patty Wetterling and her family. May this book bring hope, insight and strength to so many others.

#LoveAlwaysHopes #jacob11The last few months have been pretty surreal. After 7 1/2 years of working hard, taking classes and writing a memoir, it is finally here.

This never would have happened without Joy Baker. Her skills, dedication, heart, compassion and her shared love for Jacob both encouraged me to continue writing and helped me to believe in myself once again.

Joy is an incredible writer, coach, friend and accomplisher. Although, I had journaled and written about events and things that had happened while searching for Jacob, I had no idea how to start pulling it all together into a book. Joy did. With her coaching, editing and contributing in so many indescribable ways, we worked hard to push through and finish it.

Last spring we were so happy to find an agent with Martin Literary Management and a publisher with Minnesota Historical Society Press. Now, it really is time to share the good news (although it still feels a little scary).

Dear Jacob: A Mother’s Journey of Hope will be released on October 17, 2023. You can pre-order today from
Barnesandnoble.com, Amazon.com, Target.com and Bookshop.org (purchases support independent bookstores).

A huge thank you for all the encouragement and support I have gotten along the way. It has been a therapeutic journey, and I hope Dear Jacob: A Mother’s Journey of Hope may help others who struggle with life challenges.

P.S. Joy also wrote a more detailed blog post on the process of getting to where we are today at joythecurious.com.

#StillMissingMorgan #LoveAlwaysHopesPlease share this important new documentary www.stillmissingmorgan.com which begins February 16th on Hulu with everyone you can. Morgan's mother, Colleen Nick, has been a courageous and unrelenting warrior in the work to bring Morgan home for nearly 28 years.

“Colleen is an amazing advocate for other families of missing children through her work with the AMBER Alert Training and Technical Assistance Program, National Criminal Justice Training Center of Fox Valley Technical College, and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. In addition to helping families, Colleen has presented her daughter’s case and critically important lessons learned to thousands of law enforcement officers and child protection professionals across the U.S. and internationally to help them better understand and prepare for a rapid, effective response to endangered, missing and abducted children.” –Janell Rasmussen, AMBER Alert Training and Technical Assistance Program Administrator

We ask our entire community of followers to please share information on the new documentary, and to follow and support Colleen’s work to bring her daughter (and so many other missing children) home through the Morgan Nick Foundation.

In the summer of 1995, tragedy struck the Nick family when 6-year-old Morgan Nick vanished while playing just a few feet from her mother, Collen Nick. The four-part documentary follows the new investigators who reexamined the Morgan Nick case in 2020, leading to the first dramatic shift in the investigation in 25 years, and illuminates the power of the support and friendship shared between Colleen and Patty Wetterling.
