These innocent children, having been abducted, are the victims. No longer do they have a life or a childhood. They are made to hide and live in constant fear of being discovered. Frequently their names are changed and their identity is taken away from them. Many times they are told their mom or dad is dead or that they no longer want them. Still other children, found by AAFLC, have been sexually abused, some of whom are as young as two years old. Due to the nature of these cases, AAFLC usually requires that a felony warrant be issued against the abductor before getting involved. AAFLC operates strictly on donations.
