Hello, and welcome to PTO

Well, finding this site is definitely a step in the right direction! You'll find lots of information, support and friendship here. Be sure to check out or Pennsylvania Forum:

http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=164

Also, here's a recent thread on Graterford:

http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=126430


My guy has been in the hole for 3 1/2 years, and that brings about its own set of challenges....but with love and patience on both ends, you will find a way to deal with it.

Good to meet you!

Hi Amy,
First of all, welcome to PTO! We're so happy you found us. I'm sorry your fiance is in the hole, I know that makes an already hard situation even tougher. Just try to take it a day at a time. Personally, looking ahead to when he gets out has been a real tightrope. I didn't want to look that far ahead because it seemed endless, but I had to keep up hope and enthusiasm that he would be home eventually. Somedays I was more successful at it than others. Thankfully, we only have a few more months to go before this is behind us. Write lots of letters and BE HONEST in them. He's going to know you're sad sometimes, and you'll feel better sharing all your feelings. Other than that, try to keep busy, maybe try out some new things you may not have done otherwise. I've been marginally involved in our local Theatre Guild for years, and this past winter produced "It's a Wonderful Life" for two weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas, a time when I knew I would be particularily sad. It kept me super busy those two weeks, and also the months leading up to it with casting and rehearsals and everything else...and I met some great people. And always remember...we're all here for you, too, ready with a shoulder to cry on and a hug to share.

Amy, welcome to PTO. You have found a great support site. I have been a member for a while, and there has been a lot of information obtained from here. Some days are better than others. Some days just breeze by, and then there are the days when we all feel depressed and some of us just sit and cry. The best thing to do is stay active in your man's life, write as much as you can, and be as supportive as you can. Just knowing you are doing something to help him brings you closer together. He will appreciate it more than you will ever realize. Good luck. Any time you have any questions, just log on, ask the question and set back and wait. More times than not someone on here will be able to help you. Again, WELCOME!

Hi Amy! May I add my welcome to PTO along with the others? My fiancé is also in a Pennsylvania correctional facility, currently Clinton County. I've found this site to be a wonderful place to vent, to get information and just generally to be a safe place to talk about my Chris. We'll get through it together!
