40 year sentence.

Hmm....he's been in for 13.

Only God knows.

It's hard. Sooooooo hard.

'Never give up.'

What we keep tellin' ourselves.

I miss him more than I'd miss the air that I breathe.

I would truly rather die now than not wait for him to come home.

We pray for God's grace.

Im glad that Im surrounded by extradorinary woman that are gonna be strong like me. Tommy don't get first parole hearing til 2022!! Yeah, u read that right. Im strong because I know the love we have is like NOTHING I have ever felt. I don't believe I want him and love him because I know I can't have him but I know its real. I ache and long for this man and hold onto every word Tommy says. I found him when he was at his weakest point and at the bottom. He said "god" put me in his life and we were meant to be forever.

I hope to be NOTHING but strong come 5 even 10 til 15 years from now if it shall call for that. I just had to realize that I can't put my life on hold but I can still love him with all my heart and be faithful.

What we do Ladies is a heart rendering walk....not alot of ppl can and or even would. I know that real love conquers all.

I know we have that ultimate love. He told me "Bella, we haven't even slept together and I have the deepest love for u...that is how I know u are the one for me!"

Hes gotten thrown in the hole as of yesterday. It was said he "refused to work" as he works in the kitchen. This is my first time to ever be with him thru the "hole" phase. Ive been with him for 17 months and he hasn't seen the hole in over a year and what sucks is hes about to be up for a security review and one of the requirements was NOT to go b4 the RIB....and not to be in the hole for at least a year......however I think that is NOW shot. Sucks cause he can be held up to 15 days and here I got a visit in 11 days. However, his case manager did say that he should be out b4 then. Pray for me! I have to wait and hear from him. Just keep ya fingers crossed for me please ladies.

~Bella~

Well I dont know if I belong in this forum or not!
I hope I do because I cant seem to figure out sometimes where I exactly fit in!
My BF has 9 1/2 to 30 so it's not 10 but it might as well be!
he's been in almost 3 years now and we have 6 and a half to go! before his ERD
Praying for the good time bill to be passed in Michigan!

my man is in 27.5 years ...of a 55 year sentence (1 day counts as 2) but there are many things that can get him to come home sooner....like if this law is passed about 1 day counts as 3 and if he goes back to court to get more years taken off and time cuts....hopefully he only gets 10 years max...im hopeing

He should get a "time sheet" I know here in WV they give out those once every 6 months or soo telling time served, time left for parole etc...... If not then there should be a main DOC in Va for that, you might want to check the VA forum ! good luck!

Welcome to the Long haul ladies club!!!!!!!

I'm in the "long haul" category, but I don't know if I will be posting in the 10+ much longer... my boyfriend called me last night and said...suprise suprise..he took a drug test beausr they informed him he will be "going before the board", for a possible early release! He only has a little over a year left of a 10 year sentence, so I find this very interesting. He said it could take up to 3 months... but then again any less time is more time of freedom..it's odd, he's been trying for judical release for 4 years!
So am I still allowed to post in the 10 + forums?? I do admit I like the people in this forum!

My husband and I have known each other since before he went down, about 16 years ago. He asked his best friend, my neighbor, to write me after he was in about 5 years, (after I got divorced from my 1st husband), and we wrote and called each other, fell in love and then got married last September, so I've been with him over 10 years. In it for the long haul. :love:

My husband has done 11 years of a 15 year sentence, denied parole twice...

We have split up twice, during which time I had two kids. But my life always brings me back to him, like this magnetic pull that I cannot fight. I'm sure that sounds stupid, but it is the truth. I miss him so much, and I love him more than I ever thought possible. But I am scared what is going to happen when he comes home. Will he accept my children? Will he change his ways? Stay out of trouble? So many questions and no answers other than time will tell....

My husband has done 20 years out of a 15-life sentence.
I will wait forever need be because good men are really hard to find and my man is truly a good man.
Please pray for us, his parole hearing is coming up in 2 and a half weeks. He has been denied 6 times already.

My love has done 17 years, he was sentenced to 15-25 we are hoping he will get his parole in January. He did not get it last January He has now done his a.o.p class so we are praying for a return home in 9 more long months.

My husband is doing 12 years and in the Fed so no parole, only GTC. He's done almost 4 already.

And yes, people ask me, 'when does he get out?' And then I tell them and they are like, "What"? and get the 'not if it were me' look.

But then, I look at some of my friends...I was 24years old when he went in and will be 35 when BOP says he will be released. Would I wait 7 years for Mr. Right?

Well, I have a friend that is 35 and she has yet to find a good man who is her equal/other half, or even to find one that has the potential of being a good husband and step-father to her daughter...so you can look at it like this...I've found Mr. Right (he's just got 7 years of issues) and he loves my son (his son, his twin). He's the right one for me and we've worked out MANY of our issues he and I had before he went in (which, with age is so much less significant than we first thought 4 years ago). Therefore, we won't have to go through the typical dating-getting-to-know-you-and-your-family-learning-your-habits-and-mine nonsense (which might take years, and years, and years...). So who has the better deal? At least I don't have to spend the next 7 years dealing with a host of jerks, or investing mental, emotional, and physical time in getting to know someone who is not remotely 'FOR ME & ABOUT ME' and then having to parade them in front of my son--going through heartache, headaches, and uncertainty of "if I will ever find THE ONE". Hey, they feel sorry for me? I feel sorry for them!

I've been with my husband 4 years and he has 11 more before he attempts the parole board. I miss him every day and write him daily still but...I maintain my life. I have children, grandchildren, a cat...a job I love. He's worth it...my marriage is worth it! In the end I'll be stronger as a woman which will help us be stronger together as well. I have my days but I always know where he's at and I know we love each other and this is where I am supposed to be in my life at this time. I may not know what it is yet-but there is a life lesson in everything.

I sooooo know the feeling!! You spoke many of the words I'd say myself. When you know you're with your soulmate, you'd wait until the end of time if you had to.

My husband has been in for 18 years. He received his parole but the state I'm in will not accept him through the Interstate Compact agreement. I have been fighting them for 4 months. He will be released to the streets in Detroit so the possibility of us being seperated for two more years exists even though he will be out next month
