Should have thought of that before you broke the law, your just as much at fault and even more so. You may of loved your child but you sure as hell did not act like it by breaking the law and ending up in jail in the first place. Stay out of jail the next time so your child can be proud of his Mom . Change your life and help guide the future of any other children you may have to do the right thing and obey the laws that we have. Simple as that.
