    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...

    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...

    Frustrated, Sad and feeling alone

    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.

    Hello,Firstly, I'd like to commend your bravery in speaking about your experiences as mothers with children who are incarcerated. I am currently working on my thesis project for my Masters of Fine Arts investigating the experiences of women whose children are in prison. I am hoping to draw attention to the difficult, often largely overlooked experiences you are going through. If you are...

    Is there any mothers here that have a kid that received a long sentence? I thought I was doing good about my sons incarceration but now it feels like it's catching up with me. I tend to try and live in denial as a coping skill.

    My son is being blackmailed in prison

    1
    has anyone out there had experience with prison blackmail?  My son is serving a short sentence (24 months)  he has been coherced for the past few months to send money to people.  which means, I am sending money to people.  I just do not have any more money to send.  I fear for my son.  there seems to be no recourse to take.  If he stops paying, he could be hurt or killed.  What do I do?
