    Hi everyone, first of all let me say how sorry I am for all you moms out there that are dealing with your son in prison. My son has been in prison for 13 months and has another 11 months before he is released. He was charged with assault for hitting a man after his fiancé was grabbed under her skirt by this man. This happened in an Indiana casino…[Read more]

    • Hi Lynn, thank you for responding to me…it was nice to have someone that understands. You gave me good advice ass far as thinking about the future since he only has 11 more months to serve plus 3 years probation.

    Hi all moms, my son is not in prison but I am positive it is where he is headed. He was arrested for sexual assault against my daughter. I am devestated snd feel like I am in a fog. I can’t stand beside him and give him all my support because right now the priority is my daughter. I am so depressed and lost and filled with grief and guilt. I feel…[Read more]

    • Hi Deanne!

      I understand that you are not able to be there for your son,however,being there for your daughter at this time is in important. Just remember that your son needs you as much as your daughter does.
      All of the feelings and that…[Read more]

    • Either one of these situations would be bad enough but the fact that the assault was against your daughter must leave you with so many emotions. I don’t know if you have any 1 friend you can turn to without judgement that would be great but if not it’s important that you keep talking to moms in this group. Try to separate the offense from the…[Read more]

    • I’m so sorry to hear your story. I share in your feelings. This is NOT at all what I imagined for my son either. I remember the joy and overwhelming love holding him for the first time in my arms. Flash forward to the present. Three years ago my son was diagnosed with a debilitating brain disease. Needless to say he refused to accept the…[Read more]

    Hello fellow moms. My 19yr old son is being charged with burglary and theft (felonies in oregon) and I am so scared he will try to commit suicide in jail. Any advice?

    • I was very scared about this when my son was first arrested and learned I had to trust God that He had my son. It took time but I came to believe that wouldn’t happen. Talk to your son about your love for him and how you are waiting for him to come home. They need to know someone cares…

      • Marian is right. Just keep letting your son know how much you love him and how much God loves him. Talk about plans for when he gets out. I think this must be every mothers concern. As it was mine as well
        God bless you and your son.

    • Trusting that God will send his angels to comfort you and your son. Continue to remind him how much you love him.
