Talking I'll Start!

My name is Danielle and I am the Co-Forum Leader for this forum. I am 29 (again - ha! ha! ) and the mother of 10 year old twin girls. My loved one is currently serving LWOP in Michigan. We have been together for about a year but I have known and loved him for a lifetime in my heart. I am looking forward to scouring the internet and getting as much information to all of my adopted Ohio family as I can. Hey, we are practically neighbors! Take care all - stay strong!

Ok - now it's your turn!!

Hi Danielle, my husband is serving an indefinite sentence, 18-Life. He's been locked up for 10yrs. and we got married 5/20/02. I'm eight yrs. older than him. I've known him since 1988. Between the both of us, we have 5-children. My eldest son is in the Airforce he recently married and they're both stationed in Japan. My daughter is a teenager but she's developmentally handicapped. My stepsons live out of town, so I usually get them during the summer-time. I have lots of family in Michigan too Yes indeed, we are neighbors. Sabrena

Hello to everyone. My name is Carmen aka Jubaby. I just turned 34 today and I have three boys. One from a previous relationship and two from my soon to be ex-husband. I have no children from my baby but he has a son. We have five years left on a 13 year sentence. I am located in Dayton, Oh and my baby is at the DCI. We've known each other forever and used to kick it together when I was 21. We recently got back in contact in June and have been going strong ever since. Once your true love always your true love.

Hiya, I'm Shannon!

I'm 25 years old, and I live near Columbus. I'm an editor for a major publishing company. I don't have any kids, but I have one fat cat named Jonah.

I'm waiting for my guy, Brant, whom I met at church while he was out on house arrest. He's down 7 years and has only about 8 months under his belt (including jail time credit). We're hoping for less but prepared to get through all of it.

That's me.

Hello I am Ravenslove:
I am a OTR truck driver. No children, one extremely spoiled Dog. My man and I met while he was incarcerated in Northeast Ohio and I worked there. Now he is in RCI in Chillicothe. We hope he will be out in April 2005. Hello everyone.

Hello all! I am Ohiogirl. I live in northeast ohio and am helping two friends who have been wrongfully imprisoned for 14 yrs. Their convictions were overturned and ordered new trials over two years ago, but the prosecutor appealed. We are waiting on the appellate court to rule. It's been almost a year for that. Pray that they will get their true day in court.

I appreciate all the support and friendships that I have received on PTO. I will help you with whatever you need as well. Check out their website listed below!

God bless!

Hello. I'm Nichole. I'm 23, have 2 children together and 1 on the way in October. My fiance was convicted of something he didn't do. Not saying the evidence didn't point to him, but since I was with him, I know he didn't do it!

Anyhow... .he is in CRC we are filing for Judicial Release in October. He will be out September next year if denied and we still have a probation violation to deal with.

Hello, I am Julie I will be 38 next month and am the mother to two kids Courtney 8 and Ryan 16. Many of you know that I have talked about my problems with Ryan who is also incarcerated at The Louis Tobin Center. My husband Donny and I have been together for almost 3 years. He is presently at BECI with only 4 1/2 months to go on an 8 month sentence. Ryan should be released here in the next few days I hope. He was supposed to come home Friday but because he got in a fight he won't be.

Unhappy Hello Ohio

My name is Sue. My son is incarcerated 3-6 years. He is in the process of leaving Lorain and going to RICI or he may be there already...not sure. I'm here to find out the real deal about the prison system and get all the info I can cuz I don't have a clue about any of it. How long usually until someone can visit?? I have not been able to see him for about 3 months now. Any info will be helpful...especially about RICI. Thanks.
Wayne's mom

Welcome Wayne's Mom..You will find a lot of support here. I don't know what I would do without my PTO family. Make sure to check out the "Parents with Children in Prison" forum, you will find that people there will be supportive and understand your circumstances also. I am sure that one of our Ohio family will be able to answer your questions soon.

PM me or mlk2001 if you need anything or have any questions.

Stay strong....

I guess I'll finally say a blurb or two about myself (when has that stopped me before?!?)

I'm Megan...I'm 26 years old (as of 9/12!) and live in a suburb of Cleveland. I work for city of Cleveland as well as the county as a victims advocate serving victims of crime, primarily domestic violence but it varies day to day. I love what I do so it's kind of bizarre that I've chosen to be a penpal to inmates (currently I have 5). I live alone with my 3 cats (Mr. Biggs, Squirt, and Oliver) and a fish, snail and a frog... My 5 penpals vary quite a bit...CA, TX, IL, NC, WV...and for a wide variety of crimes. Go figure, the penpal that has grabbed ahold of my heart is the one who has the longest sentence. 7/3/2024. I'm meeting him for the first time on 9/24 when I make the 9 hour trip to NC! ...that is, if he doesn't piss me off again before my trip!

Default looking for info

Hi, My name is Mary, I have a son in BeCI, in St. Clairsville, Ohio. he's sentenced for four years. I have a wuestion. My son called me and asked me to find catalogues for the approved venders. He gave me M&P Sales , access catalogue, and union supply. I can't locate any of them. Does anyone know these companies? Let me know if you have any info.

Thanks, this site was nice to find, it's good to know there are others out there, who are in the same position.

Mary

Hello everyone, my name is Ray and I live in the Cleveland area. Although I have no loved ones in prison, I myself am a ex-inmate. I did sixteen months at Pickaway Correctional. I know sixteen months doesn't seem like a long time to some of you, but for me it was enough time to lose everything I ever wanted. I know what being in prison can do to a family. I have been out for over eight years now and I am involved with one of the largest prison ministries in the country, it is called Champions for Life.

Hi (((Mern1952))) Yes, I've heard of the vendor "Union Supply" I remember my husband sending me the form a couple years ago. He got his from the prison. Ask your son to see if his case manger can get him the order forms. Meanwhile, if I find that old form, I'll PM you with their phone number.

(((Bakerman))) Welcome to PTO. Ray, we are glad to have you. Any time spent in prison is too much time. Thank you for joining and I look forward to your input. God Bless.

Hello you guys I am Danielle here in Virginia. I will be 24 on Sunday. Happy Birthday to me.... My husband is in RCI in Chillicothe. He will be 30 in December. We have been together going on 6 years. We started dating about a month before he was arrested in GA. I did not think that I could be strong enough to stand by him through this but I have hung in there this long. I love him so so much. He is serving a 15 year sentence for something that was simply a mistakr but Ohio chose to throw the book at him. We are trying to get his sentence reduced. We are planning to get married as soon as he comes home. He wanted us to do it while he was in but we want our families to be apart of our special day. We also want to be able to go on a honeymoon right after the wedding. We don't have any kids together. He has twins and a son from previous relationships and I have a son from a previous relationship. I am so glad that I am a part of PTO. You guys are great!!
