Default WI mini introductions--get to know your neighbors

I got this idea from another Forum Leader. So here it goes:
My name is Wendy I'm married to an inmate at Waupun Correctional Institution. He has been gone for a year and a half. We have been married going on 4 years. We share a daughter and I have 2 boys from before him. I work in an alzheimers home. I live in Fond du Lac.

So tell me a little about you.

Update: I am no longer with my ex who is still in Waupun Correctional. I no longer live in Fond du Lac.

My name is Lisa and I live in Madison, WI. I work in the military insurance industry, and also at a woman's clothing store. I am looking for a third job now; to work on the weekends. My relationship to the prison system is by Trey, who is in Dodge Correctional in Waupun. He has a little over 2 years left, and we have known each other for 6 1/2 years now.

I'm in Madison, my fiance is in Dodge. I'm working telemarketing for charities and raising my almost 2 year old little boy, waiting for my baby to get out in 21 months so that we can get married and live happily ever after and never go back to our old lifestyle.

My name is Robin and I live in Appleton. I'm a warehouse cordinator. My husband is at Waupun Correctional. We have 5 children and 2 grandsons. He has been in prison since 1990. If any of you are aware of the DA Scandal in Winnebago County, my husband's case was one of Paulus's high profile cases. Richie's case is now being reviewed by the state for misconduct! Very Good sign that he will be home soon. We have 5 children and 2 grandsons.

My name is Amanda and I live in Milwaukee. My man just got home from doing 2 years. He was in Dodge, CCI, JCI, Black River Falls, and then he completed the boot camp program in St. Croix. We're still adjusting to him being home. A lot changed while he was gone, but I always visited as much as they'd let me, and I'm happy to have him back

My name is Tanya and I live in Pocatello, Idaho. My love of my life is incarcerated in Fox Lake. Cliff and I just celebrated our 1 yr. anniversary on the 9th of this month. This year has been an accomplishment for the both of us and I would not trade it for the world. I have learned things about myself that I never thought possible. The most important of all is that no matter what, love will prevail and a love that risks nothing, is worth nothing. Just when you think you can go no further, you fight a little harder. In the end it is all worth it.

Hey everyone

Well, I live in southeastern WI but my fiance is actually in prison in GA. We had just moved here almost 2 years ago. He's been gone a year now and is actually up for parole this month so I hope he will come home to our family in WI soon!! We have a daughter together who is 4 months old, yes I was 2 months pregnant when he had to go back to GA and serve time. I also have a son who will be 4 in October.
I work in the printing industry... wooo hoo! Actually in sales so it's not all that bad.
Just wanted to come in and join my neighbors! I'm the forum leader for GA so I'm around ... alot. LOL Oh and did i say... Wenny rocks!

Hello, My name is Fay and I live in the center of Wisconsin. I have a son doing 6 more years in Waupun. He is innocent, How do I know? I was there, he was on paper yet so he was IT! The atty says its done everyday. The prisons are full of guys rail roaded because they were still on paper. Real justice, huh?

HI ALL, my name is Mary I live in Milwaukee, myb/f is serving 2yrs 10 months at Oshkosh. He will finally be released in September. He had 5 dui's which is a felony in WI. he has lost so much due to his drinking, and feels he has lost everthing, he is resentful, confused, and is very worried about his 2 yr probation when he is released.He has Hep-c which is in remission now. I and he is worried that our relationship may not work when he is released. he has alot of resentment toward my 22 yr old son to, b/c the 5th dui was called in by my son, and that one sent him to prison on a felony dui. i am hoping when out some of his resentments go away, i waited through out this ordeal and really would like to give it a chance.. hopefully without the alcohol, which would kill him..... good luck to all

Welcome to PTO you have come to the right place for support. My son is in Kettle Moraine and I know what you are saying about being resentful and confused. My son is the same way. He has his good days and his bad days. All we can to is pray that some good will come out of all this. Good luck to you and stay with PTO it will help you get through the hard times. Karen

Hi everyone my name is Natalie and my fiance' is currently at the Wisconsin Resource Center in Winnebago. He was transfered there from Waupun Correctional. I am very happy to meet others from the area, to know i am not alone. He has 4 years left to go and there will never be a day that goes by where i do not think of him, for he is always with me. We are in the process of moving forward with our marriage, which we are both very very excited about. I look forward to hearing all about everyone.

Just call me Missy. My man is in Waupun Correctional, has been in for awhile and not sure how much longer we'll be waiting for his release.
He's sitting on dead time, done with all his programming needs, denied parole. So we're holding out for a grant and release within the next 2-3 years. But I won't hold my breath.
Hope to be transferred to a medium this fall. Cross our fingers.

I'm Yvette.. I just moved from Milwaukee to Florida..Jaye is currently at MSDF just starting a sentence anywhere from 13 to 24 months, depending on this PO because he was on paper when he got this new case. It's hard because we are so far apart now, but when he caught the new case we were already preparing to move....oh well. We are still very close and he will be moving here when he's released.

Hi, this is a nice idea. My name is Andie, and my boyfriend is in Waupun. He has been locked up for 8 years, but we split up for awhile and have just gotten back together. I am in law school and live in Madison. It's nice to "meet" you all; this is my first time in the forum.

My name is Caryn. I live in Madison and my boyfriend is currently in Oakhill in Oregon but will be moved anyday now to Thompson in Deerfeild. This is his second time down since we hooked up in 2000. He has about a year left and the nightmare will be over.
