The Koger Harris Family, living just outside the nation’s capital, has experienced firsthand the many negative impacts of parental incarceration. Here, Demetri prepares to get on a bus with his two brothers, Isaiah and Dashawn, and his grandmother Sandra, to visit his mother, Sherrie Harris, at Hazelton Penitentiary in Bruceton Mills, West Virginia. Because the prison is more than four hours away from their home and the trip is so expensive, the children only visited their mother twice in ten years. It was on the first of those two trips that the three boys found out that their mother was in prison. Demetri was distraught, resisted leaving the prison, and had to be consoled intensively by Sandra.
