A Lost Opportunity

A Message from Tim Horne (Aftercare Impressions)

In my role in after-care support for students of New Life Prison Ministry I go to many places: prisons, coffee shops, people’s homes, doctor’s offices and probation and parole offices being some of them.  I also go to court fairly often. This past week my wife Lil was able to join me to observe the sentencing of a fellow I have been visiting at a local Detention Centre.  I have visited him 5 times during the past few months and he and I have been able to talk about many things, mostly connected to is charges and plans for life after his release from prison.  He came to my attention after a fellow worker with New Life Prison Ministry spoke to me about him.  A little later the Volunteer Coordinator at the prison called and asked if I could connect with him.  There are concerns that every time he is released from prison he returns again within days or weeks.   After my first visit with him I understood why that was his pattern.  J has a diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome and because he started bouncing around from foster home to foster home at the age of 1 year, he was never able to get the kind of loving support or consistent treatment and therapy needed to learn how to function properly in society.  He has been taught few or no coping skills or strategies.
