I could practically feel myself crying as cops initially ignored my pleas to help me find my son. When I finally found him, with the help of those same policeman, I just know that I must have yelled in my sleep, "You're safe," accompanied by more tears.

Computers : A Byte of Caution

The server that ElderHope is on has been listed as a server that sends out spam. And, indeed, that is a true statement, through no fault of our own. ElderHope has never, at any time, sent out anything that could be regarded as spam under any definition of that term.
