Thanking God that my Adopted Daughter Spring Doe finally got massive media coverage in the Chicago area last week thanks to a community alert sent out by the Chicago Police. Hoping the right person has seen this and the tip that can bring her home comes in.
Never give up hope. Spring, we will find your family!

My adopted daughter “Spring Doe” (Medical Examiner’s case 435 April 2005) now has her DNA entered into NamUs. Many thanks to the Medical Examiner’s office for getting this vital data entered! Praying for a match. Behind the scenes, other progress is happening that can’t be discussed here.
Thank you so much to the Medical Examiner’s office and the Chicago Police Department for caring about this Doe. Spring’s NamUs rating is now up from 3 Stars to 4 Stars out of 5:

Important Reminder: The “Adopt A Doe” campaign hinges on the help of the families of the missing using their voices to help identify Does.
We have received several requests from advocates wishing to help. The best way you can help is help a specific family of a missing person “Adopt A Doe”, but you need to have the family’s permission and we have to hear directly from the family that you are their designated advocate. Thanks for understanding.
If you aren’t an official advocate of a family, sharing the “Adopt A Doe” Facebook page and WordPress site is helpful and very much appreciated. And remember all the other wonderful ways you can help Unidentifieds through existing networks: Namus, Doe Network, etc.
Thanks for understanding and thanks for your offer of help.
