    My son was sentenced to 15 years. Seeing him hurt like this breaks my heart. I hide the pain because I feel like no one else can understand what I am feeling.

    Hello, I'm new here. My son is in federal prison. He has been in and out for the last 8 yrs (mostly in) This is his 3rd probation violation (all non violent). He got 36 months this time to finish it. But of all the times this is by far the worst experience he has ever had.  He has been in now for over a year.  He was in a program where he was suppose to get 9mo of his time off and so he should...

    Hello all.  I have been really struggling with my son's incarceration and have had no luck finding any type of support group in the area I live in (Hampton Roads, VA). I am hoping that maybe I can at least chat with other moms on here that have gone on this heart breaking path. Unless you are dealing with this, you cannot truly understand. Yes my son committed a crime and must pay the...

    Mom of a Prisoner

    Hello,I am new to this group. I found it by looking for a support group for Mom's with sons in prison. My only child was arrested and placed in federal prison on 3/16/2015. That day will forever be in my mind. I will always have burned into my mind the image of my son holding his head down in shame as they placed him in handcuffs and led him out of the courtroom. He was given 10 years with 15...

    My daughter is incarcerated.  She has a really bogus 25 year sentence.  She's done 2 years.  She has her annual parole review this week.  Her unit manager refused to run her with support- even though she has completed all the mandatory programming.  Heck, she's finished every damn program they offer and several college courses.  Her sentencing judge refused to set a minimum amount of time...

    Are there any moms in FL?

    I feel we need to join and start a group and go to the Governor. The rate of arrests and incarceration are extremely high. They are arresting our kids and throwing them in jail for silly things. Talahasse has the highest arrest rate in the entire state. We need to be proactive as most of our kids are not criminals or a danger to society.

    I am new to this group. I haven't joined anything like this before, but I am searching for other moms who are going through this same thing. Im finally able to admit that my life is a real mess because of my oldest son who is in prison. Im so sad, frustrated and frankly angry about the whole situation. I feel like a failure as a mother, which until my son reached his teens, was the only thing I...

    I just spent the day with my daughter. Today is her 30th birthday. She has 7 more years to serve. I am thankful that I was able to travel to see her. Now I just feel so sad. The day she was born I could have never imagined this is where she would be in 30 years.
