Fingerprints serve as a definitive way to identify your child for their entire life, since they don't change as your child grows. Fingerprints are unique; although parents and children's fingerprints bear some resemblance to one another, they're never identical, not even in identical twins. Also, your child's fingerprints generally don't change as they get older. Fingerprints contain loops, whorls or arches in a pattern. If your child disappears at an age where they can't tell anyone their name or address, fingerprints can provide conclusive identification even years later.
