Lives in Focus filmed a monthly support group meeting in Albany, New York, at which the mothers, sisters and wives of incarcerated family members sought support from among their peers.

They shared their daily tribulations and discussed long-terms concerns about their lives and relationships.

Last time we met Devon who described how having two imprisoned family members had both drawn her kin closer while also stirring tensions.

This week, we meet Lorraine who shares how she no longer wants to hide the fact that her son is in jail:
