FC: In Their Own Words: Thoughts and Reflections From Our S.K.I.P. Stars
1: Thank you to all of the wonderful girls in S.K.I.P. You are all very strong, brave, and beautiful young ladies. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with one another. Sharing my story of having someone I love incarcerated has helped me to cope, and I hope that sharing your stories has helped you too! -Ms. Kayci
2: When I visited my mom, I talked and used to take pictures with her. In my mind, I thought she was coming back, and I was happy when she did come back. | JahKira
3: Nyshae | My dad is still in jail. It's so sad because I know that one of my family members isn't here with me.
4: Shukeria | He is in jail now, and by he, I mean my dad. It makes me kind of angry and sad. I really miss him.
5: Jabria | When my mom was in jail I was so sad. When I went to go see her I wanted to take her home with me.
7: Do you have a father that doesn't care about you but cares about someone else's kids, then you think that he doesn't love you? Well my dad does that. Now that I am 11 years old, I don't need him anymore. I have my mom and brothers and sisters. I also have a new dad and his name is Melvin. He has kids but he takes care of me and his kids.
8: I miss my dad so much. I want to hug him and talk to him. Every time I think about him, it just makes me want to cry. | Nyshae
9: When she was in jail, she missed all my fun stuff I did without her, and I wasn't very happy. | Jabria
10: Can I give daddy a hug? I wanna give daddy a hug. | JahKira | Shukeria
11: She also dreamed about me when she was in prison. Now I am so glad she is not in prison anymore. | Jabria
12: I wish I could visit my dad. He missed a big part of my life and I wish he could see every second of it. Sometimes it's just hard without him. | Nyshae
13: Things would be easier if I could visit him. | Shukeria
14: I would be thinking about my mom before I went to sleep. I had a counselor, but I didn't talk to her. I just talked to her about problems with my friends because I don't like spreading that around about my mom. | JahKira
15: Nyshae | Brandi | JahKira | Shukeria | Nakia | Jabria
