Jamie, a young woman who was jailed for 11 years is this week’s guest on Shaping Families radio program. Jamie tells about the difficulties she’s faced as she seeks acceptance and a second chance from society. Her support system included Mennonite sisters who provided a foster home and regular visits while she was incarcerated.

Jamie appeared earlier last fall in the Long Road Back: Ex-Offenders’ Struggle for Acceptance documentary which aired on NBC-TV stations, produced by Third Way Media. Shaping Families is also produced by Third Way Media, a division of Mennonite Mission Network. www.ShapingFamilies.com
