I Know I'm Not Alone...

Is there anyone else out there who is with a man who is currently incarcerated? How long is he doing? Are you proud to be waiting? How long has he already done? How old is he? Is this his first time?

My husband will be 19 in June and this is his second time being to prison. The first time he got sent was when he was 17 and they tried him as an adult. He has only been in five months so far, but got sentenced to 80% of six years. We have an almost two year old, and I will be 22 shortly after our son's birthday. The days drag on without him, and It's very hard doing it all on my own, but I'm waiting every single day. I just need to know that I'm not alone. Please, if you're going to bash me.. go ahead. I would too. All I have to say is that he got into this trouble BEFORE we met, and I DON'T hold the past against people. (:

Has he been learning how to make better choices in life?  I try not to hold the past against people i meet and find out their history.

No.  I know you cannot help who you love.  Good luck!

Yes, he has. He knows that being in trouble is NOT what's best for the only family he has left (our son and I) and He's also learning how to maintain his anger! I'm very proud of him.

Nope....Dh has a pretty strong set of morals, and though we've had friends get into some trouble, neither of us has.

I hope the time passes quickly and that the lesson sticks with him this time.

Well that's good. My family keeps telling me that I need to find somebody better, with goals and a future, but he is who I love and I couldn't nor would I change that.

Having goals would help him. Does he know what he wants to do when he gets out?

 I am so sorry :( I know what you are going thru there is a site for people who have loved ones in prison it's called prison talk online. It really helped me some rough times! I will keep you both in my prayer's...
