National Center for Missing and Exploited Children

Start Date: 2021-11-16

Description: TJ and I were the solitary team on this deployment. We were positioned in a conference room in the National Center office building and spent the 75 mins having staff come in and interact with TJ. Many of the staff got on the floor to cuddle with TJ and some were there to pet and spend time with him. Most of the staff that are in the office these days are those that need to view sexually explicit content which they cannot do at home. So most of the staff were a group of folks that cannot generally work from home, and see difficult content daily. They are understandably stressed and were very happy to spend time with TJ. Many of them also were happy to get a HOPE business card with TJ's picture on one side and HOPE info on the other. All in all, great visit, great support from our contact Lanae and wonderful staff.
