I think it was because he was feeling negative & didn't want to spend an email complaining. I let him know that I just wanted to know he was ok. I'm sure you just want to know the same for your son. They don't realize how we worry.

It's very possible that he is out of funds or there might have been phone issues. I agree that writing at least lets him know you're thinking of him & get concerned when you don't hear from him. Try to stay strong & do whatever it takes to keep you moving forward. We are here to help when it gets to be too much.


You know many thoughts have ran through, but Iím learning to accept this present moment he and I are in. Iím going to write another letter today and send another book. Your right I just want to hear his voice, and have him say to me mom Iím good, or at least as good as I can be. It doesnít help to hear that they have been on lock down twice because of stabbings. Itís all a fucked up system and itís scary. Heís only 19 and Iím sure we will need much therapy when he gets out. The system isnít mean to help it further perpetuates anger in my opinion. There are those that return to the community okay, and those that donít. I pray for the latter for both of our sons! Thank you for reaching out

Hang in there mom.
Letter writing is good. While not giving you or him the instant relief of hearing his voice, nonetheless its at least something.
I hope you hear something from him soon.
