This is dedicated to Travis Holappa who was kidnapped, tortured and murdered on July 25, 2004 in Northern Minnesota. This was all due to meth. I am Travis' mother and I wish to make this devastation turn into a better thing by educating and exposing the truth about meth, the dangers, and the deadly consequences it brings about to individuals and communities.

I want to do what I can to educate people about what is going on around the world with the meth problem. I want people to know about it BEFORE they even get the idea to want to try it. It is a dangerous drug and will ruin your life as well as all those who love you. I am on a mission on behalf of my only son, Travis.

Kelly Godwin said she took meth when she was pregnant with now 3-month-old Gabriel. Years earlier, state foster care workers took away her 2-year-old over Godwin's drug use.

"It was awful," the mother of two said. "It was like people that get raided for drugs. It was the same, but they raided us for our daughter."

Now, Godwin and her boyfriend say they're drug free. Gabriel shows no signs of health problems.
