For we see what can happen to our children that has been left behind to the jail/prison system. They go in trying to learn how to cope with this type of life with the life they once had before stricken and taken from them with the punishment of prison to be given as a result to deal with. Taken away from survival to what the brain, the heart has known since a baby, and to be administered to a place as this is a whole other level that this premature mind will have to learn to live and deal with on a day to day basis with no one to talk to that will help understand their pain and their frustration they may go through. Because they have been placed in this type of environment that type of structure of llife is gone. They are lucky to find a person with a real heart that cares for them in their mistakes and try to hear them out and talk to them to reach them from being this person that caused them to be put here into this place. For we all make mistakes, but who is willing to look beyond our faults and look at what these children neen. Love, attention, understanding, and communication helps a person to make a better decision when once given the opportunity to be heard and not just listen to. For hearing and listening are of much difference cause we listen does not mean we heard what someone is saying or trying to say. That even mean in the way the act and react to what they are saying or trying to say. If you are a parent of victim to the system, go talk to your child and hear what he or she has to say and learn to communicate from the indepthness of your heart so you can save what you brought into this world. Don't let the  cares of the life you chose to live keep you from saving your own!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
