Hi Brenn!!

I'm new to PTO, myself.

I had no idea that these services were available, until I looked for the phone number of a particular institution.

This is a great idea! Finally an opportunity for people to reach out to each other for support. I hope things go well for you and your brother. Please keep us informed, as my brother will be coming out soon and I would also like to know what to expect.

Alzab

Hi everyone,

I just joined the forum. My sister has been in Alderson for one month now and will be there for about a year. I hope that I can find people who have family members in Alderson or people who have been there so that I can find out what it's like.

I really want to be able to support my sister, but she has a problem with lying, so I never know what to believe. I hope that people here can help me out with that too.

Wayne

Hi Wayne and welcome to PTO- so glad you found us. This is a great place to come to for support and information. When you get a minute you might check out the Federal Forum to find out what Alderson is like. So many of us know how you must be feeling so I hope you will come here often!

THarrison0204- Welcome to PTO- so glad you found us! Hope you and your mother will come here often (there is a forum for Parents with Children in Prison ).This is a great place to find information and support. I know how you both must be feeling- every member of the family becomes affected in such different ways.

12/1/04 Just new to this site. My brother, age 49, was moved from Washington state to Appleton, Minnesota. Just returned from trip to see him with my 87 year old mother, who thought she would move back there to be near him. Wow, what a beautiful place, but small! Thank goodnes that she returned with me. But she is planning to move soon. We looked into HUD housing in the town, but family won't let her take the car back. Everything available is unfurnished and no place nearby to get 2nd hand stuff. I was not impressed with only hotel Super 8 in town. Very smoky for asthmatic me. Just a few resturants and good food. Subway is new. A beautiful library in town with internet, so teaching Mom to work e-mail. What a trooper. Mom helps keep brother focused and lets him get out of cell. Wish that he could e mail family here in Washington. Like that you can visit Friday through Monday at Prairie CC. Seems clean and new in 1996. Brother will miss getting outside as the weather gets cold. He doesn't mind the cold as he skiied and mountain climbed. I was at Sears paying a bill yesterday and in conversation mentioned that I had just got back from MN. The gal behind me said she was planning a trip to MN. Asked her where and unbelievable that she was going to Appleton. We went to dinner and compared notes and pain as it was her son in prison. She not sure if she can afford to go. Said wait until summer and camp out. Some very nice places.
