"A father-daughter dance
... in prison."
At Camp Diva, Angela
Patton works to help young girls and their fathers stay
connected and become part of each others' lives.
But what about girls
whose fathers can't be there — because they're in
jail? Patton tells the story of a very special father-daughter
She reminds us: "You
never know until you ask." This was her advice to the
young "at promise" (not "at risk!")
teen girls whom she mentored. The girls had a creative idea
about how to stay better connected to their fathers during
their fathers' incarceration -- an idea that falls on the
right ears at the right time.
