Little Madeleine McCann has been missing for nearly a month now, of course the media made sure that her disappearance is never out of the news and we all feel sorry for her and her suffering family and wish that she is found safe and sound but .... What her family are doing is completely wrong, I am a parent and Allah forbids if this had happened to me I would never leave my other children out of my sight even if the best world army offers to look after them.
Both parents who are a devout Catholics have travelled to the Vatican for an audience with the pope which is perfectly fine as many people find comfort in religion but what is not fine is leaving their 2 year old twins behind in Portugal with relatives! Why did they leave them behind? they just lost a daughter, this should make them even more attached to the twins, the other day the mother broke people's hearts by saying that her twins asked her about Madeleine as they were missing their sister, well doesn't the mother think that the twins will be asking where their parents are? The parents are planning other trips although I am not sure if the children will be going with them.
Another strange thing this family did was in the second week of the disappearance the father spoke publicly and asked people to donate money to their campaign to find their daughter which is fine but then he went on to say that they need people to donate to pay for the family's extended stay in Portugal, this was said in the second week! The father is a Medical Consultant and the mother a GP, that means they are a high earning couple that can surely afford to pay for their stay an extra week and much longer, I am sure the Portuguese government is helping them plus many British public figures too. sometimes I wonder if they were a poor British family would they had all this publicity and help? would Philip Green (owner of Top Shops) give them his private plane to fly them where ever they want?
The parents should consider themselves lucky that the media so far did not go on about the fact that they left their daughter alone, unsupervised just to go and enjoy a dinner on their own and I know they keep saying that they were only few hundred yards away, the matter of fact is that they left her alone.
It is wrong, the whole thing has gone wrong.
