Smile A truly Happy LIFER wife-UPDATED!

I can't begin to express how joyful and HAPPY I am for our California Lifer sisters. Family visits have been returned to Ca.

This is truly amazing. I knew one day but when?. My husband entered the system in '99, and they were taken from the lifer community in 1996, what a huge and devastating blow.

My husband and I are in an awe. We've prayed and prayed and we continue to pray 🙏🏻. After so many years. 21 to be exact, God is good.
We can't wait to enjoy a cup of coffee and snuggle.

I'm overjoyed and grateful for all of us LIFER and LWOP sisters.

Smiles844........Life is good. Thank you.

DsLatinQueen....The giddiness I feel, is so childlike.

My husband is over the moon, WE both are. Ladies, I can't fully express the emotions I'm feeling. It's been a long and an emotional journey for our family. Our kids are grown men. Our youngest turned 24, two days ago and our oldest will turn 28 in August. The oldest is married. We are grandparents, our only grandson will turn 2, in less than two weeks.
My Papi was 27 and I soon 30,. When the "family" was sucked up in the system. Indeed its been a tough and unpaved road. We never stop praying and always remained faithful . The last time we were alone as a couple, the year was 1999.

Tears of joy for us, for me.

I can't stop thanking and praising our Father God. In Jesus name 🙏🏻 Rejoicing.

Wow, chills just ran down my spine! 1999. Your courage and faith to your marriage is an inspiration. God bless you both, and have a wonderful first visit. I hope it starts immediately.

It truly is a huge VICTORY for the the lifer community.

I must add this is a HUGE victory for the LWOP men and families. LWOP's don't get many incentives at all because they are life without parole. They have no date and many of time are not included. It's wonderful to finally see a plus in the LWOP column.

If we are blessed to have one family visit a year I'd be good, but if we can get two life would be "Grand".

We believe - We have hope - We have faith - We have GOD.
Truly, HAPPY.

Default A truly Happy LIFER/LWOP wife UPDATE!!!

Our Family visit has been scheduled

I'm grateful, joyful and extremely thankful. I've been walking on clouds! God is working and WE pray everyday. I remain encouraged and know that one day my husband will come home.

I will actually be able to fall asleep and wake up in my husbands arms!!! To be able to share a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise together in each other's company has been a private thought of mine for nearly 20 years. To be able to share our thoughts in private minus 100 people is a blessing.

I originally posted nearly 9.5 months ago.....I'm thankful God, has graced us ALL with his MERCY. May our Lord continue to bless our Lifers/LWOP fellas.

Our FAMILY visit is scheduled. I'm praying this week goes by quickly.

OUR countdown has officially started...T-minus 8 days....❤️🙏🏻💞.

Thank you Mia.... I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am to God and how he has graced us with his mercy. I had tears of joy when we got approved more so when we were given the date .

I've been wanting to post. I've been so joyful getting everything together, and checking my list

It's days away. I've never wanted a weekend to come and go as I want this one too

((((HUGS)))) 🤗 and Thank you 😊

Thank you Patch....it's pretty amazing, after all the dreams . It's a dream that finally became true

My prayers never ceased, I've always believed and never gave up, I believe in God and know he's in control. He will open up the gates for our Ca. fellas. He's at work 🙏🏻 YES indeed
