I am not exactly sure if I had the experience from crying to laughing. That being said,I remember one occasion my two year old,when she was that young, got lost at Dorval airport in Montreal. I was busy checking in the luggage.When I looked around,I saw my friend coming with my older daughter. I was told Anita was left with me. I was terrified at the thought of losing her.

I took four large steps back,looked around,on my left I saw my daughter running. She couldn’t find me,scared she kept on going forward. I sped up,before she could reach the escalator going down ,I caught her. It was the most frightening experience I ever had.I cannot remember whether I cried or laughed. I certainly was relieved!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this incident. It is indeed scary when we believe that a child is lost. I’m so happy that this story ended with you safely finding your daughter.

    All good wishes,


    • Thank you Robert.I was not sure where to look for her.I was unaware of the time when she left my side.
      Taking those four steps back was the best thing I did.When I started running to catch her,all the passengers’
      focus was on me.Thank God I was able to catch her before she got to the escalator.
      Best wishes to you.
