It’s a new way to visit Dad.

Most of them soon will be out of jail. This time helps them learn how to be better parents. It lets the adults and kids have fun together. That will help everyone when the parent goes home. The book of 1 John 3:1 tells us, “See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God.”
