An estimated 2.7 million children have parents behind bars, but their stories are rarely told.

In an effort to give a voice to these struggling children, Google partnered with several nonprofits on a project called #LoveLetters. The project is a series of videos that feature children’s messages of love for a mother or father in prison.

The powerful videos capture the pain experienced by children left behind and the strong bond between a child and a parent that exists despite the walls between them.

Crossroads Prison Ministries cares for children of incarcerated parents through its Bible study courses.
