Excerpt.....Please view/browse this important, supportive website.  "Children" deserve a "chance"

"M.A.J.I.C is dedicated to giving those mothers a home, a platform, a voice and to introduce them to ways in which they can contribute to the enactment of responsible Juvenile Justice reform. Throughout the course of history women have played vital roles in progressively reforming society, a lot of roles in which today can be embraced, effective and succesful  through a powerful form of M.A.J.I.C."

A child caught up in the "system"

Excerpt.......please read full article

"The Guilty Innocent is narrated by Shannon Adamcik, mother of Torey, one of the accused boys.

My personal thanks and appreciation to Shannon Adamcik, for sharing.

Advocates for Abandoned Adolescents

http://www.advocatesforabandonedadolescents.org/

Many children sentenced to prison, forgotten by officials, society and families, tried as adults, sentenced to long, harsh sentences. Many are innocent, in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Children are still in their growing years, very vulnerable.
