John T. Evans about this book: I was inspired to write this book out of the hurt and pain of having my family and career destroyed by the illegal activities of the US Embassy and Department of Homeland Security personnel. The hardest part of writing this book was reliving many of the events from the story. I came up with the title because we became stranded in Cambodia due to an adoption/immigration situation. So, we joked about being "Kid" napped. Then, I researched the legal definition of kidnapping and discovered that it wasn't a joke; we truly were kidnapped. In writing the book, I thoroughly researched US and Cambodian Adoption and Immigration laws and International Law related to adoption and the rights of children. From writing this book, I learned that I have a passion to research and communicate complex ideas in simple terms. This has led to a desire to write more books. To my readers I would say, enjoy the book, share the story with your friends and then do what you can to positively impact the lives of poor children and help change US Immigration laws.
