Humble, giving, caring, and a difference-maker for the community of children she advocates for, Laura Perkins Taff greatly inspires me and many around her.
Unquestionably, Laura exemplifies the best of what it means to be a parent blog writer utilizing social media to help others in need. It is my honor to share with you my interview with Laura, for she belongs in the circle that is 'Heroes of Today'.
On behalf of the entire family of the I CARE Foundation, I would like to share our deep appreciation to Laura for all of her help advocating awareness of international parental child abduction prevention. Laura went out of her way to raise awarenss of this challenging issue that destorys families even though this issue was remote to her. Yet, understanding the challenges innocent children may face, Laura acted. But that is Laura - a compassionate lady who is willing to help.
