This chapter offers an excerpt of “Out of Sight, Not Out of Mind,” a manual written by staff at the Administration for Children Services, the child protective agency in New York City, which provides tips to incarcerated parents about how to retain legal custody of their children who are in foster care. For the incarcerated parent who wants to reunite with her child upon her release from prison, she has to show that she is a responsible parent, is involved in her child's life, and is addressing the issues that led to her child being placed in foster care. All of this must be done within specific time frames. This chapter spells out the parental rights and responsibilities of incarcerated people.
