The phone rings incessantly, perhaps 40 or 50 times a day, in the art-filled, Tudor-style mansion of Faye Yager. Distraught mothers are on the line. So are psychologists and social workers, district attorneys and doctors. There are gold-framed masterworks on the walls of Yager's opulent home, but the 40-year-old mother of five focuses only on the stack of children's crayon drawings on her kitchen table.

A 30-room English Tudor mansion--complete with housekeeper, gardener and Rolls-Royce parked outside--protects Yager from that world. Her home is the headquarters of an underground network through which, she says, thousands of volunteers in 50 states have hidden hundreds of children from abusive parents.

On a steamy August afternoon in 1989, Irene and Raul Lopez packed up a travel trailer, picked up their granddaughter and began driving north out of the Florida Everglades to a new life in hiding. They had been preparing in secret for two months. They had sold their land, a lush tangle of saw grass and holly shaded by ficus trees, for a pittance in cash.
