    Hello Ladies; my name is Tamara Denise; my son spent 20 yrs in prison for a non-violent crime;I know the heartache, the shame, the guilt and tears in the pillow. Some will blame you and judge your parenting; you have to stay strong for your other children and family but deep inside you just aren’t complete. It’s more than ‘missing’ your child.…[Read more]

    My son is 19 and has been in county jail for about a month. He is there for a probation violation. He also has two charges of possession with the intent to deliver (xanax). He has not been to court for any of this. I refuse to spend any money for an attorney, so he has a public defender. It is so hard for me to not know what is really going…[Read more]

    • Liz, this is totally understandable how you are feeling, even with how your heart is feeling.So many of us have, and is to this day experiencing the same things you are. It’s extremely hard, but you have to find some how how to manage this in your everyday life. Follow your heart on this one because it’s all still so new, and the anger that you…[Read more]

      • Thank you for responding. I agree with you about not sending someone to jail for drug charges. My son has been to 4 or 5 rehabs and I knew, every time, that he wasn’t ready to change. He thinks rehabs are a joke. I think jail is where he needs to be right now. He needs to be protected from himself. I’m just so emotionally confused. I do…[Read more]

        • I’m so glad that you can rest at night, that’s a lot of the battle with this whole thing.For your son,he needs a lot of prayer to get him free from drugs and/or anything else that he maybe struggling with, and I mean LOTS of prayer. In the meantime,whatever you do,please don’t give up on him and continue to love him inspite of his issues. And yes…[Read more]

    It’s been 1,500 days since I’ve been able to hug my son. He was arrested for capital murder 12/19/13 at the age of 22. He had taken LSD days before, after never being in trouble before. Ever! He confessed, publicly apologized to the victims parents and is awaiting trial Feb 2018 with those parents adamant about the death penalty. Since his arrest,…[Read more]

    Hi. My heart breaks for all of you, including myself and my family. I will keep my introduction brief. As I write this, my son has been in prison for 91 days. I would like to say it get’s easier, but I would not be truthful. And truth is what we all seek. We at least get to talk to him almost every other day. We are allowed 10 minute…[Read more]

    Hi everyone. Where do I start and more importantly, how do I continue? My 42 yo son took a plea agreement on a criminal case about a year ago, did 6 months in then probation. He cut ties with the family after his release and I just found out he is now in San Quentin. I am assuming he violated his probation. I am not even sure if I should try to…[Read more]

    • Jill
      A mothers love is unconditional. You care about your son or you would not have reached out to others for support. If you can, let him know you love him and are there for him. He still needs you even if he hasn’t been able to show it. I’m sure he’s hungry. Some prisons only feed them 2 meals a day. Reach out to him if you can.
      My son was in…[Read more]

    • Jill, try to contact him. If not for him, for you. My heart breaks for you. You and I both know that he would love to hear from you and know that someone cares for him. There must be someone at that facility that has some compassion and will tell you how to contact him. I’m in day 91 with the prison system and I’m not so sure they have much…[Read more]

    • Please by all means,let him know no matter what,you are still there for him. He may feel like he has let you down or even disappointed you,but it’s your job as a mother to always reach out to your children No Matter What! A mothers love is unconditional and we go where ever our children go. We have the right to invade our children’s life with the…[Read more]

    My son was incarcerated into the Georgia prison system 5 weeks ago.
    I have no one to talk to about it and am looking forward to sharing my hopes and discouragedments with other mothers. Thank you

    • Hi Terry. Although I only joined this group this morning and am not sure what to expect, please know you can talk with me anytime. I get it

      • Thank you Jill for your response. It’s so hard not having someone to talk to that doesn’t understand what you are going through. Having a son in prison has really put a hardship on family relationships. I finally heard from my son yesterday after 6 weeks because he was in a diagnostic prison awaiting his new prison home. I was so glad to know he…[Read more]

  • Hi my son was sentenced to 10 years in June 2016 at the age of 21. It has been very difficult for him and our family. We are trying to encourage/support him. He has a number of emotions. I dont share this with many people… because I feel they will judge. Im thankful for this site for support. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I will keep…[Read more]
