Bringing Adam Home was an engrossing read that was at times infuriating, heartbreaking, and hopeful. Det. Sgt. Joe Matthews may have just been a cop doing his job, but in my mind he’s a hero. He fought through apathy and incompetence to find and prove the truth of what happened to Adam Walsh. John and Reve are also heroes for taking their personal tragedy and using it to change a nation. I was only 11 years old, but I remember the abduction of Adam Walsh. When I became a parent, I knew he was the reason behind the Code Adam at many stores I patronized. I was sad for the price that it cost, but I was grateful for what the Walsh’s accomplished. Because of them, our children are safer. I’m glad they finally received the answers that they searched for for far too many years.
