    It's not about what the dad deserves. Its all about what the kids deserve. The children never murdered anyone never sold drugs. They are the innocent of the guilty

      If your dad murdered somebody maybe he shouldn't be alive either and maybe you shouldn't have the right to see his kid it's too bad for the kid but why should we give the Father the right to see somebody if he's taking somebody else's life f*** that s***

    Kudos to Amaya for being straight up with her dad and telling him those things. It hurts them both but it's valid and needed to be said. I'm 24 and still let my family hurt and disappoint me because I'm scared and they're all I've got, even if they're toxic

      im 47 and still get hurt by my mother. her and my father divorced when i was a tiny baby and because i was like my pops she took it out on me. I ended up in a juvenile home until my dad could get custody of me. I forgave my mom only for my own heart. Im now a mom and nanna and i tell them every other week i love them....

    The founder, Mrs. Barnes when she stated "the children are the silent victims" that made me tear up because its true, people will ask why give them this perk for the crimes they commited, well in the end this if for their children. God Bless this woman. I hope this program keeps going for many years to come.

    I’m 25 years old. I lost my father at 10 (he was killed) but he got incarcerated when I was 2-7. That man was the BEST father I could’ve asked God for even behind bars. This brings me so much joy cause my momma, despite their differences, allowed me to go see him as much as I wanted. Forever Daddy’s Little Girl🥺💕

    Man listen. Even though my dad has never been in prison, videos like this helps you appreciate what you have even more. I’m 25 years old and I am a blind man and I am living on my own now. When I first moved into my own place my dad helped me out a lot and spent a lot of time with me and has seen me develop into my own person in my own apartment. I appreciate my father for doing that. Thank you dad for everything.

    I’ve had my father in jail my whole life, and I can tell you right now, not having a consistent dad/father figure in my life ruined me. Idc what anyone says, dad’s play the most important role in society, especially for kids and moms. Trust me, from lived experience, the less fathers we see, the more problems we see.

      @Valiant Um, its not just the father's fault. Its also thots like you who choose to lie down with worthless men, without birth control no less. Both of you are at fault, and your children are paying the price (oh and us tax payers as you claim EBT)

      Speak for yourself.
      It's the mothers who do the most for their child in society, yet it's never enough, they get badly judged when it's the fathers you abandon them and the kids. Even if they get pregnant on their teens or are single or deal with other mental issues, they do most for their kids.
      Fathers just leave, go around getting pregnant other women and then leave again. Don't want to pay for your food/living after separation. Blame the mom for everything wrong they did themselves.

    This made me cry a lot. I had my father growing up but he was emotionally unavailable and I would say abusive. Sometimes not having a dad all the time isn’t as bad as having one there. I felt like these dads showed more love and support than my dad ever did throughout my life.
    He’s changed a lot now and is better. I do love him but seeing what I missed out on has made me emotional.

    • hannaughh

    seeing this makes me realize how fathers strive to be good for their kids, and do anything they can to be a part of their kids lives. my father isn’t in prison or dead, but he’s very absent and neglecting, so seeing this and how happy the father and kids are make my heart hurt because these kids have such great fathers. im very happy for them and i hope they continue to be able to see their fathers because of this program ❤️

    • Nighty Nightshade
      Nighty Nightshade 17 दिन पहले +2

      They aren’t great fathers. They WANT to be. That’s what matters. So many people have the opportunity to be there for their kids and they choose not to. these men have a constant drive to get out of jail because they’re imprisoned. I’m not saying that’s the ONLY reason why they want to see their kids but it really adds to it. I hope that being in jail inspires them to be better fathers to their children. Not to mention some men are put in jail and they were innocent all along! They miss out on their family even though they didn’t do anything wrong.

    Brought me to tears. I lost my Dad, not to prison but to cancer, and knowing these kids got to see their Dad again, even after months/years/never ever seeing him, the emotion the kids still feel for their dads. The emotion, that their dads still love them, even after maybe never meeting them or only over the phone, breaks me.

    The way Amiya sounded was so mature, she understands that her father does bad things, and the fact that she told him he only had one more chance because he has broken a lot of promises makes her sound so much older then she is. But as soon as I heard her scream for her dad I realized that she’s just a little girl who misses and loves her dad regardless.
    edit: wow this got more likes then I expected! and yes I noticed I spelt her name wrong and fixed it :)

      As an Correctional Officer this literally breaks my heart. I work in visitation often and see the sincere interaction between fathers and their children. I’ve seen so many prisoners leave only to return a few months to a year later. If only they gave these kids the attention and loyalty they deserve once they are released, there would be no reason to return.

    This really made me cry a lot. As a 16-year-old with a father who was once arrested for about four years until he came back, this really hits me hard.
    I have my father who used to do drugs such as smoking cigarettes and hanging out with friends late at night drinking beer, and whenever we were disciplined, he would physically abuse me, my older sister, and my younger brother so we could learn from our mistakes. He was arrested for illegal trafficking and drugs when I was eleven years old in November 2017, leaving me to become violent and troubled in 6th grade and going against my mother and treating my older sister like crap. That day was a horrible start of my middle school years.
    He was in jail for about four years. And in those four years, I watched this video many times not feeling anything. But then I get message from my mother that my father will come back from jail and spend the rest of his sentence in house arrest. At first, I didn't want him coming back because I would have to return to the good girl I used to be before he was arrested. The girl who wouldn't do anything. He would be disappointed at my failure to try and get my grades up after the horrible pandemic that happened. He would treat me strictly again. And he would be mad at me for being ignorant towards my mother and going against her.
    But when he came back in November 2021, all I just felt was joy and happiness. I was glad he was back.
    Of course, I had to suffer my consequences of my failures and past mistakes. But I was just happy to see that he's back.
    Love your prisoned fathers no matter what, everyone. Sometimes the fathers that are in prison, they would care for you too.

      @Carmen M. look. I have family who are ex cons and it’s true they admit they were bad people.
      Not all criminals are the same sick twisted people.
      Some are people with brains who were framed or who were defending themselves or their family.
      Some people were in a weak place and turned to something bad. They now know that’s terrible and are trying to better themselves
      You can’t go by everything the law says.

    Omgoodness. I love this. This is amazing, and I think this is what a lot of American children need. Society acts like it's okay and normal to grow up without a dad- but it's NOT. IDC if ppl are going to come for me; I'll never deny that children absolutely NEED their father.

    The dad who’s getting out in 11 months, that has the daughter and son, who have talked a lot, you can tell he loves his kids a lot, and I pray that when he gets out or if he’s already out that he will keep that promise and they can be a family again.

      A child that age will never fully understand. The brain is not fully developed until 25. That is why you have to be careful with what your child is exposed to. Her fathers convictions should not be her burden to bare at such a young age.

      No, life sentence means they'll be in jail for as long as their age. If you were 20 when you were convicted, means the sentence is also 20 years. There's still possibility for parole though

      @Felicity Holmes you don’t know what happened behind closed doors.. these children have suffered for days to months to years without seeing their dads and to see them for one day or spending one day with them is probably one of their biggest wishes because they love their dads no matter what they want their dads to be proud of them and be there for them everyday but they can’t so this is their only opportunity

      @Robert Woods you wouldn't say that if you were in the same situation. I understand that you don't have a good relationship with jail but you have to understand that some people become what they are because of pf what they went through like the video said kids who grow up with their parents in jail are most likely to go to jail. It's not that they wake up and decide that they want to go to jail, there are a lot of INTERGENERATIONAL TRAUMA going on.
      I am.not saying that criminals should be left alone I am just saying that people usually have a bunch of factors that influence them. Another thing some people are falsely acused not sure if you've ever heard about that

    I’m a recovering dug addict who was in and out of trouble for years. My son quite literally saved my life. The last time I had to go to jail, for something that happened before my son was born, was when he was 3 months. Luckily i only had to do 2 months. Y’all saying the don’t deserve this, okay maybe right now they don’t, but just like me who turned my life around for my child, these people are maybe trying to now as well, and better late than never. This gives them the hope to maintain towards that for their babies.

    For those of you wondering how these dads are doing... Arkinya’s dad is still in jail, unfortunately, and will be until 2034 at the earliest. It looks like he has a clean record in the prison in terms of behavior, so hopefully he get released at the earliest date and be reunited with his then-adult daughter. Jeremiah (Amiah’s dad) was last sentenced from jail 2013 (this was recorded in 2015) and he was released in 2019. From what I can find, he has not been to prison since. Hopefully he and his family have been reunited and he gets to be a great father every day ❤️

    I had this experience I think 3 years ago, and it was one of the best things that has happened in my life. My dad went to jail when I was, I think 2 years old, and it has affected my life in so many ways. I had not seen my dad in 4 years due to not being able to visit.
    The night before I didn't sleep, I tried but I couldn't I was so excited and all I have to say is it met expectations and they gave me the best day ever! I think at some point I fell asleep in my dad's lap while somebody was doing tricks because I didnt sleep the night before. The mentors I met were REALLY REALLY nice too :D

      @Jude Kay used to work in the prison system and you are all extremely naive. The majority of people I saw were multiple repeat offenders with rap sheets multiple pages long. The majority are in and out of jail for life, their kids do not motivate them to change because if they did they wouldn't have committed the crime that landed them there in the first place.

    I’ve got to experience this as well a few years ago at a different place. My dad has been in jail for 5 years now. He has to stay for 7 more years. The reason was because he was working for a company that failed and the companies boss put all the blame on my dad. I was so happy to see my dad again. I am 11 so for most of my life I haven’t seen my dad. I love him forever and we talk through the phone everyday. I hope he can come out early because he did nothing wrong.

    As a Criminal Justice student, it really breaks my heart that this is how this world is nowadays. The good part is programs like these help break childrens silence and let them bond with those parents who they haven’t seen in so long or never got to know at all. It warms my heart knowing that even a parent behind bars can still be there even if they’re not there physically.

    I grew up with my Father incarcerated, it really affected me because he was my hero and the world was saying that MY hero was a bad man. The day he left I turned to drugs and got caught up in the streets. It hurt so bad that I ended up convincing myself that I hated him because that was easier then the reality. If I had something like this it would have made a world of difference for me, my little brother, and my mother.
    Fast forward 10 years and he is home!
    I’m thankful that he never lost sight of his family and was humbled enough to make the necessary changes.
    I got clean and enrolled in college at 20
    The story could have gone very differently. Yes my father was being punished but it left me and my mother in total anguish, and left my 4 year old brother with pain and confusion (because he didn’t know exactly what was wrong but he knew everything wasn’t ok)
    Children are the silent, and forgotten victims and I pray that more programs like this are implemented.
