I live in the mcallen. You know I know it seems rough but what keeps me going tex is that I gave faith God doesn't give us what we can't handle. We get through it together. That's why these forums are good for us to share our Exp. Together.

Yes there are but people seem to be scarce and they post in alot of different forums I have been lucky enough to meet a great person on here that is that was released from Dublin Fed Camp where I will be turning myself into on Sept 7th and I am very grateful to have met her, I suggest you find the topic that is helpful for you and take it from there if you cant find the correct topic start a new thread for exactly what you are interested in. Good luck

Sarah,
Those of us with loved ones incarcerated thank you for caring and being a penpal....My grandson LOVES and cherishes the mail he gets from me and the people in the Card Swap.
Hugs,
Pat

I am glad we are getting some loved ones in here so we can keep up with what is going on and offer support and encouragement to each other. My loved one has been there since February of this year, been in TDC for a year and a half. Wish I lived closer so I could visit more...I miss him so much and my husband and I (his grandparents) are the only family that still communicates with him.
Hugs to my McConnell family,
Pat

Hi codysgirl11,
What kind of info are you looking for. Todd also came from Briscoe and has been at McConnell since February. Ask away...you can pm me anytime you want or need to. I check in here at least twice a day.

Hugs,
texnanny

We have not been able to go since March. We are planning on going the first week or so in December as long as my husband's health will allow, we are his grandparents and the only family that goes or writes to him. How often do you go and who do you have there?
