New Year, New Life

For the last 15 years that Jurgen have been incarcerated, her family has upheld a unique tradition. The children, along with their godparents, come to visit and have a grand celebration.

They value this practice as a family, probably even more than their Christmas Day festivities. Not because New Year – New Life Day is more important than the Lord’s birthday, but because this is the only time that even their dearest friends can be with them. Her husband and she promised each other than when she is finally free, they will continue this celebration.

Today, however, it will be 10 months since Jurgen’s husband’s death. She is still in jail, and she will not even have her special someone to bring food for the family to share.
