Christmas is a particularly hard time for prisoner’s children. Many of them are desperately missing their parent who has gone away. Although some prisoner’s children do have phone calls and visits, these can be fraught with difficulties and many have no contact at all.
With this in mind, we made it possible for MyTime children to make a ‘Build-A-Bear’. We had an enormous amount of fun and for some children the bear became a comforter during difficult times.
