Default Hello, back again

Well, I'm BACK! Damn. I was so blessed to be connected here in Prisontalk, to others going through having a loved one incarcerated when my oldest son was in a state prison in Oregon. He was 19 & did a dumb thing that fell under mandatory sentencing in that state & he was away 3 years +/-. My prayer was for his release before my 50th birthday.
AND....here I am, once again. This time, it's federal & it's the other kid, you know, the "good" one! They are BOTH good ones, but this was so unexpected. Internet - an FBI sting to entrap men contacting underage girls. There was no girl, there never was contact, but the law is the law after all & there COULD have been contact, I suppose, if there were a real girl, we'll never know. He's where he needs to be for now. But we love our families, even in their failures, right?
This crime also falls under federal mandatory sentencing & it's a 10 year minimum. Never thought I'd be praying to see my son out of prison before my 70th birthday.
He was arrested 2 days before Christmas 2016, has been in a count jail until February 2018. This morning I finally got a call, we know where he is, God's mercy has him in a minimum security, not too far from here, 11 - 12 hours to drive & he is safe. I can now see his release date on his info & guess what? Yep, his date says Sept. 2025, that's 1 day before I turn 68. So, yeah, it's good, but bittersweet.
Thanks for letting me rabble on. It feels good to say it & know that there is no judgement, but hearts that are knit together thru this common thread. Blessings. See ya all around!

Aw, mommatrip! You're taking it pretty well, but I know how much it hurts. I'm glad that this time you knew where to turn, though.

Welcome back isn't exactly appropriate, but ....
You'll know you've created God in your own image when He hates all the people you do.

My son had the same situation but in 2015, I got his call Dec 21, 2015 around 920p.

He just got sentenced in March.

Praying for both our boys.

Feel free to PM me.
