Anne Van Pelt has been away from her "princess" for several months. To help stay connected to her daughter, she is video taped reading a book to her ten-year-old daughter.

Van Pelt is currently serving a sentence for drug-related charges at a female Probation Detention Center. 

Participating in HeartBound Ministries' Little Readers program is one of the few ways Van Pelt can connect with her daughter. Every three months, she sits down to read her daughter a new story.

In Georgia, there's an estimated 75,000 children with incarcerated parents. HeartBound is connecting children and parents through reading on video.
