WELCOME TO MOLC
We are a group of mothers whose children are forced to visit unsupervised or live with their identified perpetrators through failures in the family and juvenile courts. Our children have disclosed abuse, and have not been protected or believed. The agencies designed to protect children have not helped, and in many cases have done harm. We have done everything we, as individuals, could do to protect them, yet have been unable to keep them safe.
MISSION AND GOAL STATEMENT
The mission of Mothers of Lost Children is to support, nurture and pray for mothers who have been forcibly separated from their children by the family law and juvenile courts. Our primary goal is to bring to public awareness the fact that children who report abuse, particularly incest, are regularly given into the custody or unsupervised visitation of the identified perpetrators. The mothers who strive to protect the children are commonly removed partially or completely from the children's lives.
Mothers of Lost Children is a non-structured self-help support organization. There is no cost for membership. If you are a mom having problems protecting your child in family law court, you are welcome to join us. For the protection of our members, we use strict confidentiality procedures.

HISTORYMothers of Lost Children was formed in 1994 by a group of Davis, California women, whose children had been abused. Their children's lives were devastated, not only by the abusers, but by the very governmental and private agencies designed to protect them.
The women looked in vain for help, and found only betrayal. Although from different faith practices, they began to meet each week in the park in silent protest to pray for their children.
The name of the group was chosen to honor Las Madres de los Desaparecidos (Mothers of the Disappeared), formed by Argentine mothers who met in silent protest in the Plaza Mayor to pray for their adult children who had been kidnapped and tortured by their government.
There is a precedent for success in protecting captives through spiritual and ethical means.
Mothers of Lost Children has also found a role model in the actions of a small group of German women who, in 1943, began a vigil that grew to a group one thousand strong, to protest the imprisonment of their Jewish husbands. They called themselves "The Rose Street Women," and stood defiant, refusing Nazi orders to leave the site where their husbands were held.
The SS troops waited six days before giving in to the Rose Street Women and releasing twenty-five men, already tattooed and bound for Auschwitz.
The February 27, 1993 Sacramento Bee article noted, "It's still unclear why the Nazis buckled to the Rose Street Women."
We've come a long way, Baby!
Mothers of Lost Children hold in their hearts the story of Gideon, whose people were attacked by a huge army. Gideon and 300 others gathered on a hill with lamps and trumpets. They lit their lamps, blew their trumpets, and shouted mightily. Miraculously, the enemy troops began to kill each other, and fled.
