E.. mbarking on a journey to understand how your past might be affecting you today requires courage, but you won't be alone.. Every single Member of Take Root was hidden as a child..

Belonging.. by Take Root member Rebekah, about what finding Take Root meant to her.. A note from Take Root Executive Director and Member Liss:.. I spent my life until age 33 reconciled to the idea that people's jaws would drop when I told my childhood story.. It was.. my.. jaw that dropped the first time I told it and heard someone say me, too in response.. I had a very different abduction story than the young woman I was speaking to, but there were many common threads - including challenges we had faced in adulthood.. It was such a phenomenal relief to be able to talk to someone who'd been there! And, because of that, I was blown away that there were hundreds of thousands of cases of abductions by family members every year, yet NO identifiable resources or support for those abducted.. Starting a comprehensive program became a mission.. As I started meeting others who had been abducted, they made it.. their mission, too.. Take Root officially started in March , 2002, with a group of nine.. We were 40 strong by January, 2003, when we successfully obtained a grant from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.. As of this writing, over 200 former abducted childrne have participated.. And we are growing every day.. It can be overwhelming to suddenly be in contact with people who are all talking about a childhood abduction experience.. Keeping our mission in mind can help you find your way as you bring into the open a story you may be used to keeping secret.. Participating as a Member in Take Root programs not only provides you with support it also allows you to contribute.. Currently our voice - and its understanding of child abduction from the child's perspective - is (pun intended) missing in the field of missing and exploited children.. That needs to change.. Together, we can make a difference in the types of services available to individuals and families impacted by parental abduction.. Together, we can do more than recover missing children - we can help missing children recover!.. Take care and Take Root!.. Executive Director, Take Root.. (360) 673-3720..

By Take Root member FC.. Executive Director.. In 1978, ten year old Missy Sokolsky was abducted from New York by her mother, who used a stolen, forged baptism certificate to begin life under a new identity.. As law enforcement and a slew of private detectives scoured the country in search of Lee and Missy Sokolsky the fugitive mother and daughter became Sharon and Melisa Hart, emerging out of thin air on the other side of the country.. In her early 30 s, Melissa (Hart) Haviv founded Take Root, to help fellow victims of child-abduction overcome its legacy and share their insights.. Today, she is considered a leading expert in the victimology of child-abduction and child-centered best-practice responses.. In 2001, Fulbright Scholar Melissa Haviv discovered that what had happened to her as a child was a crime called family abduction and that it had happened to others.. She also discovered that although excellent services and resources existed to support families searching for missing-children in all types of abduction cases, and to aid the professionals who assist those families, no specially designed programs were available to help abducted children recover once located - not just in family abductions but in all types of child abduction cases.. Knowing firsthand that the trauma of abduction does not disappear the day a missing child is found, Melissa began a crusade to expand America s missing child response.. beyond recovering missing children to helping missing children recover.. Today, Melissa is a leading expert on the victimology of long term child abduction.. She is the visionary pioneer behind Take Root, a landmark missing-child nonprofit that adds data collected from primary victims to  ...   to the field revolutionary, game changing, and essential..

Kirkpatrick has consulted extensively over the last five years in the juvenile correctional system, working with incarcerated youth and their families.. Kirkpatrick holds appointments as a staff psychologist at Evidence Based Treatment Centers of Seattle, as a clinical faculty at the University of Washington, as a consultant to the Experimental Educational Unit at the University of Washington, and is currently opening the Behavior Therapy Center of Tacoma, where he will serve as Clinical Director..
