Thank You All

Thank you all for your prayers and your calls. Please keep praying for our family and that we get Julian King back home safely. If anyone has any information about his whereabouts please contact the authorities immediately. Here is a picture of Julian and what he was last seen wearing. Once again thank you all for being there for us through this tough time.

The Hudson Family
(from Hudson's MySpace blog)
jennifer hudsonI've already written that the tragedy of her loss, the deaths of her mother and brother and the abduction of her nephew are heartbreaking.

I learned tonight that the singer and Oscar winner has offered a $100,000 reward for the return of her nephew. She's also visited the morgue in Chicago to see the bodies of her mother, Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson. The Chicago Tribune reports that Hudson's family home where the murders occurred has become "a magnet for fans and curiosity seekers." The newspaper also has a page of late breaking news in the case.

Here's the link to Jennifer Hudson's MySpace blog (Click). Read more on the reward offer and other details on this story at CNN.

The reward statement is also posted at Jennifer Hudson's official website.

Barack Obama's reached out to support Jennifer Hudson, according to People Magazine.
"Michelle and I were absolutely heartbroken to learn about this unimaginable tragedy and we want Jennifer to know that she is in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time," the Illinois senator said. "We also pray for the swift and safe return of her young nephew." (a statement Saturday from Barack Obama)
At first that seems odd for a presidential candidate to single out a celebrity and give his condolences during a national election, but then when you consider that Hudson sang the national anthem at the DNC this summer per Obama's campaign request and that she, like Obama, calls Chicago home, it makes sense.
