Parental Child Abduction is a CRIME and Child Abuse!
Each year more than a 1,000 American children are reported abducted from the United States to other countries. Between 2010-14, 6,000 cases were reported. Less than 40% of the abducted children are returned. India is the No. 1 non-Hague Abduction Convention signatory destination of IPCA from the United States and No. 3 overall (U.S. Department of State, 2015)
Bring Our Kids Home is a parent-led organization seeking the immediate return of children, kidnapped from the United States to India. This is in response to the alarming rate of child abductions to India and the lack of India’s cooperation in resolving these cases, point to decades of public policy missteps and the inaction by the United States to protect interests of American children and families.
Since our founding, we have engaged the United States and Indian Governments to establish a robust legal path for the return of abducted children and prevent future parental child abductions from both nations.
Bring Our Kids Home has worked actively on victim support, policy research, advocacy and awareness campaigns. Since 2015, Bring Our Kids Home has continued to deepen our engagement in the above areas, while expanding our capabilities to serve victims and the public interest, with regard to International parental child abduction ("IPCA").
During the holidays more than ever, our thoughts turn gratefully to those whose friendship and loyalty has made our progress possible. In that spirit we would like to wish you, your families and your children a safe, happy and joyful holiday season. May 2024 bring us all good cheers and blessings

"Childhood cannot be recaptured. Gone forever is that sense of history, intimacy, lost input of values and morals, self-awareness through knowing one's beginnings, love, contact with extended family, and much more. Virtually no child possesses the ability to protect him- or herself against such an undignified and total loss." - Clawar & Rivlin
