In an interview with speaker Tony Robbins, Ballard explained how hard it was to start the organization:

I had to do a lot of research on slavery and how to end people trafficking through history books, as it wasn’t as much of an issue as it is today.

The victim's father asked Tim,

Could you sleep at night knowing your son’s bed is empty?

The former special agent knew he couldn't rest until the boy was safe.
