This was supposed be congruent but, Florida’s sentencing board accidentally put it in as consecutive and that put his release date as 2020. They still have not…[Read more]

    • “Florida’s sentencing board accidentally put it in as consecutive and that put his release date as 2020.”

      Did you contact the sentencing board? If so, what was their report? You mentioned the judge acknowledged the “error”? Was the error acknowledged in writing? Did anyone from the court call the Florida sentencing board?

      My suggested is for y…[Read more]

    Hello. My name is Tiffani. Things have been rough for me since my son was arrested. During the holidays I fall into a depression. I didn’t realize it until my husband brought it to my attention and we becagan to pray about it.

    • Hi Tiffani, I think you have to give it time people will connect at some point. If you have depression there is help for that out there. Of course it would be normal to be depressed.

    Today was finally a beautiful spring day in Boston but too many people where out and about in the small town I live in. I had all intentions of taking a long walk with my dogs but panic came over me and I never left the house. I know that everyone that knows me and my family is 100% supportive and noone in this town believes allegations, but my…[Read more]

    • Louise I am sorry to hear you have a rough time getting started some days. I think we all do so don’t think you are the only one. Try and ignore the comments by your family and proceed with what you think.

    Hi all, I am very new to this forum as well as being very new to this new life I now had. I’m having a real difficult time finding who I once was before my son was incarcerated. I don’t get out of the house, I have stopped working, I have stopped going to the gym and I completely became someone I Don’t even recognize in the mirror. How do I push…[Read more]

    It’s 3 a.m. here in California. I cannot sleep or eat and I’ve cried more than I knew a person could cry. I lost my job today. I’ve missed too much work and have had to leave crying too many times now. I cannot think about anything else. Can’t concentrate, can’t focus. My head is in a fog of grief. He’s 25 and has been in county jail for 18 days.…[Read more]

    • Hi Sheri,
      I’m so sorry you are going through this ordeal with your son,and I’m sorry you lost your job. I do understand every feeling and emotion that you’re going through “BUT”,you have to get focused or you will not be able to help him when he needs help,and he will. You have got to shake yourself if you have too. I know this is hard but you are…[Read more]

      • Thank you Lynn for the kind and encouraging words. You’re so right. I need to shake myself out of this sadness to help him. I see him tomorrow for the first time and I cannot let him see me cry. I will be keeping your words in my heart to remind myself to stay strong and not fall apart. I’m so appreciative of the support. It’s like a lifeline.…[Read more]

    Hi my name is Devin. I was looking for a support group and found this site. I have a son that passed away three years ago after that my other son started spiraling out of control now he’s in prison doing 3 1/2 years he’s only 19 went in at 18. It hurts so bad and I’m ashamed to share with others where he is.

    • Hello Devin,
      Thanks for joining MWSIP,we are happy to help you.
      I have mothers ask me all the time if they should tell people where their son is because they are ashamed. If and only if someone ask where your son is,you would say, “my son is incarcerated for a mistake that he made and he’s doing fine”. Very few people would ask why he’s in there.…[Read more]

    • I’m sorry you are ashamed but that says more about your friends than you. You are his mom and you love him and I bet you always have. We can do no more than love and support our sons while they serve time. I may feel the same way when my son gets incarcerated. I do know that I did everything I could to help him.
