Thumbs up Kids visitation? and some good news finally!

Good news! He is suppose to get his visitation list back tomorrow. It's been two months since I have seen him or had a phone call. He is going to call Monday or Wednesday.
I'm going to surprise him Christmas Day. Boys are going to Dad's for two days of partys and dinners and gifts with his family. I can't afford to do Christmas. They understand and don't really care. I take care of them at income tax return time. I give them each a wad and set them loose at the mall. They would rather have me go see him on Christmas.

Is it okay to take my boys to see him? They want to see him really bad. One is 16 and one is 13. They know the score. He loves them like they were his own. The 13 yo is autistic.
Their father and I had an acrimonius relationship to say the least and other things went on, but basically the kids don't care to have anything to do with him and he is a part-time father at best. He told me Jason could adopt them if he wanted. Jason wanted to punch him in the head. He wants to get his daughter back and have another baby. He adores kids(he is basically a big kid himself, but aren't they all?). They absolutely love Jason and as far as they are concerned he can be their dad. The 13 yo is like "Jason is it" and has been dying inside since he was arrested. Jason said when he gets his list back he is going to add the boys. I already sent all their info..

I just need to hear from anyone with kids how it goes with this.

Hi. I take my daughter sometimes. She is only six so the process makes her a little restless. Usually there are lots of kids for her to play with though. I am in Mississippi so I can't speak for Pennsylvania but I haven't encountered any problems.

Great news luna! I've taken my daughter and the first time she was a little nervous at the process but I totally downplayed it and the next time she was fine. There are other kids there every time I go and they seem to do fine. I only have the experience of this one PA prison but people there tell me that it's one of the most tedious "inspections" to get in ...yet my daughter did fine. And since the boys seem so excited to see him and they're older (my daughter is 9)...I think they'd do just fine. Good luck! (And it'll be a Christmas gift for BOTH of you!)

I've taken our daughter a couple of times. She's only four. I think it's easier when the kids are older and not as restless. Travis is in max, and the visits suck anyway, and there is no play area for the children, so our daughter gets a little restless. But we keep her entertained with treats from teh vending machine, books and card games.

I'm not sure how the laws differ from state to state, but I know that in WA you have to have ID for all kids over age 15... so you may want to check out the rules and regulations for ID and all that before you make the trip up there.

Good luck and enjoy your visit!

I've already read all the rules. Jordan has to use his school ID which has his picture on it. I can use their Medicaid cards, innoculation records, SS cards, birth certificates, etc. Jason has to put all their info on his list and I gave him a list of ID for them, that I have, then he has to send me papers that I have to sign giving my permission for them to go into a state prison, then he sends me back a paper I have to have with me indicating that we did all the paperwork.
