Diary of a Mother's Mission

My son, Kevin Martin, disappered under mysterious circumstances in the wee hours of July 18, 2004. His partial remains were found on February 1, 2005 in the river. The Des Moines Police have not been helpful and this is my blog to tell what I have done as it's done.

Well, the other day I was all elated. I felt more hopeful that there was progress of some sort.
There is still hope of finding the rest of Kevin's remains. Perhaps I'm too optimistic. Searches have been done before but they found nothing more.

I guess the most important thing is to maintain an even keel sort of thing. This is nothing new.
Ups and downs. The past year has been filled with ups and downs. One day trying to keep up my hope. To maintain faith and then alternately grieving because on some level you know that your son, your child is gone and not coming back.

Today is that same sort of day. One of the down days where it's hard to remain positive and hopeful. But this will pass as it has in the past. Whether up or down,though I have to be per-
sistent and not give up what I'm trying to do in the face of discouragement. This is about the honor and dignity of a young life who happens to be my son. I promised to honor him at his
memorial service as any parent would and part of that is finding out what really happened to him.
