Return to Family with Norma Cumpian

There are more people in prison in the United States than anywhere else in the world. What can we, as Christians, do to help those in prison? Fr. Mike interviews Norma Cumpian, a woman who was in an abusive relationship, made bad choices, and ended up convicted of second degree murder. She was pregnant at the time she received the sentence of 19 years to life. Norma talks about her experience in prison, especially missing her son. Her father brought him every other week. She talks about the anger, sorrow, depression, feeling sorry for herself. Then there is a turn in her life. She began praying for her son and how she could help him. She speaks of the lessons he learned by visiting her. Now she is out of prison and is Coordinator for the San Bernardino Area for Get On the Bus, a program to take children to visit their parents in prison. You won’t want to miss this inspiring story of a woman who made it back from darkness into the light.
