Default Hello

Hi my name is Cassy and I have a brother that is serving time in Missouri Department Of Corrections , My fiance is also doing time in a federal facility . I have adjusted to them both being gone . My brother is doing 120 day shock Treatment and my fiance is doing a 5 year bit and he is due to get out in 2008 ( that is his projected release date) It really helps them alot when they get mail from there loved ones and their families . Even when they call they like to joke about things . You got to keep your chins up for them ladies .

Shirley, welcome to you also, not sure if I had done that. There are small minded people everywhere, just remember they have exactly that, small minds. You will find open minds and open hearts here.

I am also new to this place..My mom actually found it and mentioned it to me...I think its a great idea...Ive wanted to find people in similar situations as me and my family..because noone else can relate...My brother was recently sentenced to 26 yrs on Jan 9th....Im still in shock...It juss seems like a nightmare,and Im waiting for someone to wake me up...Yet the reality is that its just what it is...Reality...I broke down in court and after court...and since then Ive held it inside..I wanna be strong for my brother and the family...My outlet has been writing,it seems to help me a little bit..but I think that talking to some of you may help me even more..because I just dont know how to deal with it all quite yet..Like I said,Its been almost 3 weeks since my bro was sentenced...but he was in prison awaiting court for almost a year...me and Jason are so close and although this tragic situation had happened,I wont allow it to come between the bond that we have and have had our whole life...I feel that people judge too much from the past,and due to that fact,it makes him look like hes the bad guy...when theres no doubt in my mind he took the blame for the other person...from what Ive been told,he has only one appeal and Im hoping that we will be able to prove his innocence...he does not deserve to be going through this while the other person is out free to roam and do whatever they please...God knows who the innocent one is,and Im hoping that the truth will set my brother free in due time...Jason is being transferred this week to a closer facility,which is a great thing..because hes been in raleigh the past year and its atleast 6 hours away...so with him being closer,and having a visit a week,Me and my family will beable to see him...I write him as often as I can and alway send a poem out that I have written on my own,with every letter or card I send...It lifts his spirits up....I also try to talk about things that we'll do when he comes home,though noone knows when that might be...But I have to keep his hopes up and let him know that there still is hope and faith to guide us through this trying time...I myself cant even imagine what he is going through right now,and I know that though I am not as strong as he is,I would switch places with him,if even for a day,so he could smile and not have a worry in the world...well I think Ive typed half of a novel right now...so I will write more later on... All of you are in my thoughts and prayers..and I appreciate the site more than youll ever know...Thank You!

MissinMyBroInNC - Welcome to the Siblings Forum -so glad you found us here! I am really sorry to hear about Jason-good though that he will be closer so you can visit him regularly. As you said, writing is a really great outlet-keeping a journal, writing to Jason, coming here and writing and keeping us posted- all of it can be really therapeutic. Hope you will come often and I am glad your Mom found it too-this site can help the whole family.Just ask if you need help finding your way around.

G'day everyone. I am a 21 year old female from Australia.
My brother who will be 24 in June is currently on remand where he has been for nearly the past 7 months. He is due to be sentenced on the 9th of March.
This is his first offence and it's kindof a bad one though, he dealt a commercial amount of ecstasy to his so called mate who then went and sold it to undercover cops.
Anyways, enough of the ramblings.

Just thought I'd say hi to you all. So HI!!

Thanks for the welcome. I've been looking at this section of PTO for a while now, but tend to stay in the Australian section :P.
Thanks for keeping him in your prayers. And no problem, I shall keep you all informed.
