My name is Nancy. My daughter is in Perryville for 2 1/2 years. I live in the east and cannot visit her. I write several times a week and send money. I also send her what she requests from the internet. The shock has worn orr, but the heartbreak is still as painful. I need to know if there is an advocacy group in Arizona for women who have children wha are molested by a family member.

Hi my name is Krissie My moms name is Jodie we registered to this in hopes to gain strength and knowledge to get us through all this. April 23 my bf we love and adore as a family member as well, got sentenced it was a messed up deal and he was lied to by his public defender in every single way. We gave her the proof to show he was not guilty of this and yet she did nothing. My mom says what doesnt kill us will make us stronger and that god walks with us. We will get through this together and then continue forward in life. I live in Needles , ca and he is in the gila unit in douglas. NOt sure how we will get or how often to visit yet. Not even sure when I will start getting calls. Any help would be greatly appreciated at this time.

Default I miss my son sooooo much!

My name is lisa, originally I joined the california forum because my friend is in cali. well now i am sad about joining arizona's because my 18 year old son is currently being held at the lower buckeye jail. his first offense and pretty serious. I have cried too many tears for my son and just can not or do not know what to do other than be here for him and encourage him. some days I feel so helpless and can't stop the tears from falling. I love my son with all of my heart and soul if I could trade places with him I would do it in a heart beat. we are the begining faze of all this DOC madness!

My first time having to go thru something like this. My first time falling in love......Dont get why he had to go away, right when he fell in love. Its not fair. Im not dealing with all this very well....It hurts......
Hoping that I can get to know more of you, just incase one day I start to lose my mind, and need someone to chat with.....Thanks for Welcoming me into the PTO family, with open arms.....
i know how that is i've lost it time to time but it gets better when you get to see him or get his letters thats what makes it all better.

My son is what is keeping me strong. My way of coping, is that it's not 'forever' and sometimes, they say, they're safer in there then they are out here. At least he's not away in the service, where you wont have visitation options, and not knowing if he'll ever come home or not. I also HAVE to remind myself..that he is in prison FOR A REASON, I know my husband is a GOOD person, who made a BAD mistake. Keep yourself busy with the family and friends around you, write letters to your son, and always keep in touch! I am thankful we get the options for letters,visitation and phone calls. Good luck with everything =)

Hi we are also new to this if youd like we can be friends, my boyfriends lawyer lied as well. he was to get 90 days and then there was 3 years all for stuff that proof of unguilty was and is literally still in our hands. But anyways feel free to private message me and we will go from there ok ........ ANYONE reading this is welcome to as well. Without friends where would we be? so lets come together and help each other : ) oh ya this is me and my mom, my mom is facing a tough one too as my brother goes to court june 8... : (

Default Hello All!!

Good Morning Future Friends!!

Well goodness...first and foremost - I have to say I LOVE THIS SITE!!! For the past couple of months I've been just a mere 'spectator' gleaning so much info from you guys, So thank you!!

As for introductions - Lets see...My name is 'B', 31 year old female, born & raised here in AZ, and live in Tempe. I currently have 2 'connections' that are 'guests' of the ADOC. One, my cousin who is currently serving a life sentence in Florence and a dear friend who is currently serving the last leg of a 14 year sentence.

Obviously as all you have experienced -having those you care about 'in' - can be emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually and financially taxing. But I'm so impressed, encouraged and strengthened to see the support that is given here! I do hope that I can be as encouraging as you all have been to me...

Take care and hope to hear from you all soon!!

Nice to meet you all.... ( This is Mom) I look forward to sharing things with you all. Still learning how to add friends and all and be able to talk with yall even easier. There are a few we met that want to get carpools going and all and be super support for each other. Besides them being in there some of us need support in other ways as life still goes on. I hope each and every one of us is granted the strength to carry on together and get past this hurdle that life has thrown at us.

Welcome to the forum David! I wish it were under better circumstances.

First I have been down your road in the recent past. Its tough. But I promise it does get easier. My wife did 12 months of an 18 month sentence. She started out at intake aover at Perryville.

Durring that time 2 to 4 weeks she will be evaluated, consult with medical and pysch evailuations etc. If I remember right durring intake, she is not allowed to call you. But you can write.

Writting is what kept me sane durring that year. Also a section on this forum just for us: http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=110

I have some good info such as contact information and addresses for DOC. I can send it via private message if you like. But let me give you this link to start: http://www.azcorrections.gov/adc/prisons/perryvil.asp

Its important that your wife try to enroll into some of the programs available. Such as education and job training. Her skills and needs will also be acertained durring intake. My wife stated she did not finish high school. That got her into an edu. class which kept her busy while earning her parole.

Hang in there and write her as much as you can. Your having a hard time on the outside. Imagine what she is going through.

Marc

So sorry you are going through this, you certainly need help. I would go the the az.gov website first and see if there are references to agencies that might be able to help you.
