recognizing impacts of incarceration on children

Last night, the ‘inside’ women-writers wrote about an unexpected bonus or something we never dreamed could happen in our lives.  Interestingly, a number of women shared inspiring stories about becoming mothers and raising children!

Here’s a snippet from D.S.:

I made choices knowing that the end results could send me to jail.  ..feeling like I would be the only one serving the time, when in reality my children are also serving my sentence from the outside.  As my stay comes to an end, I am totally aware that all the choices I make affect my whole family.  My children deserve much more..and need my love and support and time in order to grow.  

. . . and you?
