Its all around us whether we want to believe it or not, human trafficking, child exploitation, children sold as sex slaves. What are the signs? Has it been in front of your face the whole time but you have failed to notice it? Is a home in your neighborhood one that houses these victims? What can you do as a concerned citizen? Are people you communicate with on a daily basis indeed pimps or Johns? What are the warning signs? Can you make a difference
Social media plays an important role when it comes to finding children but it also plays an important role in how a child goes missing. Now a days few parents know their childs login to their social media. By using social media we have found that these children will actually plan out how they are going to runaway. Social media is widely used by pimps and pedophiles to lure children into their hands. Smooth talking and fake profiles designed to lure these children is very common. Knowing your childs login and passwords can greatly aide in finding your child if they do decide to runaway. Every parent must remember that when a child decides to runaway they never intend to become a victim of child exploitation or human trafficking. Be aware of your childs activity, monitor that activity and learn the techniques to review your childs social media.

Christine McDonald is an internationally recognized author and speaker on the social injustices facing underserved populations today. As a survivor of human trafficking, homelessness, and addiction, Christine- now blind as a result of a disease that forced her to choose between her unborn child and her eyesight- is on a mission to bring justice and awareness to the forefront of social change through education and unconditional love.
Christine began life in a small town in Oklahoma, in a very dark and painful household. She felt safest using her own survival skills to live on the streets and ran away for the last time when she was just 15. This began her 17 year journey of homelessness, which comprised of being sex trafficked, drug addiction, prostitution, 103 arrests and 7 prison stints. Finally ready for a better life and barely able to read or write, Christine began a new journey of exiting the life of the streets, only to be challenged again.
Completely blind and eternally vigilant, today Christine uses her life experience and education to work as an advocate for trafficking victims, the homeless, recovering addicts, ex-offenders and disabled populations. Currently living in St Louis, Missouri, Christine is a proud mom of her 7 year old son and practices a loving open adoption with her daughter’s adoptive parents in nearby Kirkwood. Christine is the author of Cry Purple: One Woman’s Journey through Homelessness, Crack Addiction and Prison to Blindness, Motherhood and Happiness and is the founder of www.ChristinesVision.org. She has also been featured locally and nationally on various media outlets, including NBC, CBS, FOX and NPR and sits on multiple local, state-wide and international level boards and committees.
