Faith to Leap by Sharmaine

Sharmaine and sonIt was Jan 12, 2012 and the judge had just sentenced me to a military correctional facility for 50 months. My view of my future was dark and the climate of my destiny was very cold.

I remember thinking:

  • How am I going to survive this kind of distance away from my only child?
  • How am I going to raise my son from prison?
  • Will he still love me when I return home?
  • Will I survive this storm mentally?

I wept all the way to Naval Consolidated Brig Miramar, my new home and cried for months while beginning my new lifestyle.

What next? How do they create a new life in which they can be successful and fulfilled? How do they build a positive future for themselves and their children?
We help them Leap to Success.Leaping Lucy Logo
