BOOK COVER FOR “WAITING ON THE OUTSIDE”

There are over two million people incarcerated in the United States. What if your child was among them?

Most of his life, my son has had difficulties following the rules. For years, I tried everything I could to help him learn how to deal with his demons. Nothing worked. He could not seem to live a normal life without alcohol, drugs, and crime.
