Eating cereal the Missing Kid poster on the milk carton is seen. It’s me. Date missing: 10 years ago.

I stared at the carton, the unabashed smile mocking my shock. I glanced up at the refrigerator to see the same exact photo with me smiling my big smile at age six. The only difference I could discern was the huge MISSING stamp at the bottom of the carton’s image.
