A member of the Dad-O-Matic extended family has recently gone public with details of a situation that would be any parent’s worst nightmare – having your children suddenly taken away from you, and not being able to see or communicate with them for more than a year. Â This has been the terrible situation Colin Bower has been up against since his ex-wife kidnapped his two young sons and illegally smuggled them out of the U.S. to her native Egypt. Â After a year of keeping private and attempting toÂ resolveÂ matters through the system, Colin has now opened up about his heartfelt quest to regain communication with and custody of his beloved sons, Noor and Ramsay. Â A Facebook page has been launched and Colin and his supporters have reached out to the media and the U.S. Government to spread the story and try to implore the Egyptian officials to enforce what the courts have already deemed proper, and give Colin access to his sons, and return them to their home in Boston. Â The Facebook page gives many details about how we can all help, including an easy way to send an email message to the office of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Â You can learn more of Colin’s plight in the interview below from his recent appearance on The Today Show:
As a father it is hard for me to find the words to describe, or the thoughts to imagine what Colin and his sons must be going through. Â My heart goes out to him as do my wishes for a speedy and positive resolution and a happy reunion with his sons at their home in Boston. Â Colin is not only a loving dad, but he works closely with Chris Brogan at New Marketing Labs. Â I met Colin briefly at a conference before and he is a respected and trusted friend of many people in the Dad-O-Matic and Social Media circles. Â Please lend your support to Colin in any way you can during this most difficult time… Â And give your own kids a hug, knowing how very blessed you are.
