    My son is doing a 8yr sentence and this is his 30th day. I worry non stop about his safety and well being. I just found out he is transferring to a different unit. Could someone explain why? He is already 6hrs from me? I haven’t got to visit him yet and now that he is going to another unit will I have to wait another 30-45 days before I can see…[Read more]

    • Hi Michelle,
      Transferring him to another unit in the same facility should not delay the time that you may go visit him. But its hard to say because very facility is different. I pray you can visit with him soon.

    • my son has been in prison now for 35 days, some days are better than other days. How do you cope with it? the emotions are so strong.

We all thought he screwed up we can work together on this. We noticed something not right with him. Not wanting to work, staying gone for days, lost a really good job. He’s…[Read more]

    • Hi Cassandra,
      I totally understand how you feel about your son being so young. My son was 18 as well. It’s a scary feeling,however, some of your sons are having to learn the hard way and we blame ourselves and feel so guilty.The fear is consuming and it hurts so much. They take us through so much that’s hard to handle. I got through by taking one…[Read more]

    Hello I just joined the group
    My son was sentenced to life in prison. About 5 years ago our family has been lost, separated and grieving his absence. Its been a terrifying nightmare that just doesn’t end. Unfortunately without the money for a lawyer he got assigned a legal aid who did no good for him. Our hands are tied.
