Raise money to help find Isaiah. Thank you for your support!

Thanks to all who helped provide the gift of educational safety to Isaiah! We reached enough funds to help obtain an iPad for Isaiah!!! XOXO

Starting as soon as next week, Behavioral Services can begin training him safety and communication skills through software specifically designed for his special needs on his new iPad!

We are now ONLY $500 away from being able to purchase a Tracking System to locate him immediately next time he wanders into harms way.

Since the age of 4, Isaiah has been a "Runner". Keen at finding ways to elope quietly while under the watch of caregivers and family members.

Wandering… The constant fear parents with a special needs child will always have. Every week there is another news story of a child gone missing and sometimes the results are tragic. It is becoming more apparent that wandering and drowning are leading causes of death for children with special needs, who often have limited communication abilities, impulsive behaviors, and a lack of a sense of danger.

July of 2011, Isaiah escaped quietly out the rear door of an ice skating rink, while on a field trip with daycare. He was found 30 minutes later, 1/2 mile away by a woman driving by, who notice him walking along Oxnard Blvd, where the average speed of cars is 50 miles per hour. She immediately flagged down a Police officer. After writing up a "Child Abuse Report", Isaiah was returned safely to his caregivers.

Scary? Yes, very! This is just one of MANY similar stories where Isaiah has wandered away undetected.

This fundraiser will help us purchase and maintain a Tracking Device which will enable us to locate Isaiah within minutes of wandering off. The product best fit for Isaiah is the WorldTracker GPRS at www.protecgps.com

We understand these are tough times for all... Any amount will be much appreciated.

With Gratitude and Love... Isaiah Ries-Freeny's Family
