WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

This is a question I was asked by media when 5 year old Alie Berrelez was abducted in 1993. My hope is that no one is ever asked this question.  

Your life will never be the same.  Try to do everything you can from finding yourself in a situation like this.  Life is about children, they bring great joy to our life.

"Our mission is to reach out to the general public 
concerning the dangers of child abduction."



On this website you will find out why this Foundation was incorporated. You will learn how you can protect your family from the dangers that your children will have to avoid.  You'll find out why you need to be alert about people you know and new people that might become part of your life.  

You will find out how law enforcement can be helpful and why to support your local police department.  You are going to know why we spend so much time with bloodhound dogs and why I have made horses part of my life.  Being proactive in the mission we pursue will become a part of your everyday life.  

 
WARREN VILLAGE
STAY ON TRACK
The American way of life must stand firm. It has to be about people working together for a good cause.  A good cause is making sure that every young child has a bright future ahead of them.  With us it starts with a simple but important visit to Warren Village Learning Center in Denver.  

On this day we spend quality time talking with the children about the value of their life and the dangers that we are all concern about.  The Carter family and their bloodhound Scarlett support ALIE with their presence as children ask serious questions about strangers and proudly present the American Flag.  Children make a difference in our life and it's time for us to make a difference.

Growing up in Frio County, Texas I entertained myself by looking at pictures of dogs in Encyclopedia Britannica.  I would always admire the Bloodhound and the English Mastiff.  I told myself that someday I would get my own dog and buy a Mastiff. I have never own a Mastiff to this day.  

Never would I have thought that someday I would end up spending most of my time living and working with bloodhounds, much less traveling thousands of miles to deliver them to law enforcement. 

To this day bloodhounds come and go out of my hands and I have never kept on for myself.  Close to 500 bloodhounds have come through our home and out to law enforcement all over the country. 

Each one represents Alie and their purpose is as Alie spoke to my heart, "Let them go so they can find children like Yogi found me."

If your police department needs a bloodhound for their K-9 Unit   we can be of service to you.   Please contact us anytime, thank you for the opportunity to serve you.

WALKING ALONE
Child abduction is something people usually don't think about until they are touched by it.   I was reminded of a past memory from long ago.  Child abduction has crossed my path 3 times and only now do I fear it and work at protecting my family from it.

Many years ago when I was younger in Wisconsin, my wife told me that she had heard on the News that a child had been abducted and found murdered.  It was a very sad story to hear, I was touched, but I never gave it much though after that.  

When I was about 6 years old growing up in Texas I was walking alone down a country road when a car with two men stopped to offer me a ride.  They open the door and told me to get in and they would drive me home since they knew my father.  My instincts told me to say nothing but run and not look back until I got home safe. I did exactly what I knew I should do even though I had never heard about child abduction before.  I never shared this experience with my parents or anybody else.  It became a lost memory for many years until one day when I stood in front of a school full of students and staff in an auditorium and I shared my memory.

In 1993 my first granddaughter who loved me, who liked to spend time with me, and stole my heart was abducted and murdered at the age of five.  Life has never been the same since that day.  I try to live a stable life but it is not an easy task.  My life is not stable, my world use to make sense and now it's unstable. Life continues regardless, I live it day by day. I carry the memory of my granddaughter Alie.  It is sad to know that there are many families like my family in the world.  Their world makes no sense.

Sometimes we do things that endanger our own children.  Things that we overlook or decisions that we make might later end up hurting our children.  Just wait I said, "I will be back as soon as I can." My youngest daughter was only 6 years old and she was with me as we were driving down a long desolate country road.  

It was mid-morning, a very cold and windy day in the middle of Winter.  I did not even notice that the gas tank was low and the car just died as it ran out of gas.  Nobody was passing by for us to catch a ride so we walked a long distance and even though we walked as fast as we could to stay warm, we were cold.

After a long walk we finally got to a gas station.  After we were warm enough I was able to get gas in a borrowed gas can.  Not even thinking about child abduction in any way or form I told the gas attendant, "I'am going to leave my daughter here."  

My daughter was not happy but I left her anyway.  Children have always been and are always abducted from anywhere at anytime.  It never crossed my mind to ask someone for a ride and take my daughter with me.  

I never forget that day, I was a fortunate father that got his daughter back that day.  Just wait, is not acceptable when the life of a child might be in danger.  Contact us for a presentation.
INDIAN RIDGE ELEMENTARY
INVITE US TO YOUR SCHOOL
This was one of our visits to Indian Ridge Elementary in Centennial, Colorado.  It is important to talk to children about child abduction and to make it a way of life.  Look at the faces of these children and try to tell yourself that one of them is not important to their family or our country.  

None of these children can be replaced.  Each one of them is very important and unique.  Your child is precious to you, it is not an easy job caring for your children every single day, it is a great responsibility, but you do it for one simple reason.  You love them too much and you should and more.  

There is more, have you prepared them for the dangers and the risk that they might have to face each day?  Do they know what they should do to protect themselves from an approaching person or stranger that means to hurt them or possibly pull them into their vehicle?  Make it a way of life, talk to your children every day about criminal minded people.  Your child is very important to you and your family.  Email us your questions, comments, or request. 

PARENT'S EMAIL
The school has over 900 students and resorted to a year-round track system. The school is great, but had one major flaw in my eyes. When I would drop off my kids, they would line up in the back of the school and await their teachers to come retrieve them and march them to their classes. However, often, the teachers would not come out or show up until the very last minute. I would always stay around because it was prime breeding ground for some psycho to kidnap a child and no one would even know. I self-assigned myself to being the "watcher on the wall," protecting the children. Memories of Alie and your dear family's horrific experience made me very aware and attentive to these kids.

One day, my youngest son's teacher never came out to get them, and about 25 first graders were left outside waiting for her. Fortunately, another mother and I remained there, but had we left like the other parents, our children would have been left unattended behind the school. Needless to say, this completely freaked me out and the other parent and I took the kids into the classroom ourselves. 

Come to find out, his teacher had a conference that morning and had asked another teacher to bring her students in and apparently there was a miscommunication, which could have put our kids at great risk.

Of course, after my child was safe, I marched myself to the principal's office, where I shared Alie's story and how I never want to see another family go through the horrors your family has gone through. With tears in his eyes, he was horrified and assured me he would take care of the situation.

As a result, he met with his entire staff and PTA, and put in place a safety program where not only is every teacher outside in advance to the children's arrival, they also have over 12 PTA members who serve as school crossing guards (which they didn't have before) who are also assigned with monitoring any suspicious activity, and they have the principal or assistant principal walking the grounds constantly before and after school with radios. Plus, they put additional staff members (like the PE and science teachers) around the perimeter to monitor the kids and keep them safe.

So, I wanted to encourage you because (with tears in my eyes as I even type this), Alie's story is saving not only my kids but over 900 other students and their families from this ever happening to them (at least on school grounds). Last year, it was highly probable that the school could have had missing children. This year, that risk is almost impossible due to the changes they implemented as a result of Alie's story.

I hope this encourages you to know that in Alie's memory, other children's lives are being saved in advance. I think of her every time I drop my kids off at school now, knowing that she is the reason our school is now safe. I always whisper "it's because of you Alie,"

So please tell Alie's mom that Alie is still making a difference after all these years, and although I would rather she be here with her, Alie's life in heaven is making a gigantic impact here on earth.

Bless you all. I just had to share to encourage you and let you know I still think of you and Alie always. Lots of love!!! Give Alie's mom a big hug and kiss for me. I miss her.
