But I do understand how you feel. I didn't get to see him for the first 55 days he was gone. I saw him January 13 and didn't get to see him till March 7. That was the hardest part of it. And hopefully we wont ever have to go that long without seeing each other again. I drive 4 hours to get there and 4 hours home to see him. It's 230 miles from my home. But its worth every mile just to look into his eyes for a few hours and get those 2 kisses.
True, there are others on here who are waiting much longer than we are for our loved ones to be placed back in our arms. By the time I'm able to see my fiance again, it will be over 2 months. The last time I was able to kiss his face and hug him was August 9th. I won't know what that's like again until October 24th. While I'm allowed to visit him on the 12th of October, the visiting rules say only a brief hug at the beginning and a brief hug at the end. Other than that, I won't know what it's like to feel his arms around me until the 24th. He's almost 400 miles from where I live, and there's a chance that the weekend of the 19th is off because I'll have my little boy that weekend. We were already scrubbed for a visit on October 5th because it's just 1 day shy of the last 2 weeks that he'll be there. He arrived on a Monday. The 5th is a Sunday, so we were scrubbed for a visit by one day. Sometimes the system can be so cruel when it comes to family on the "outside." We're serving their time as well by being kept away from them and then given rules when we are finally allowed to be with them. I can understand the rules in some ways because it is easy for some people to take a visit to the extreme (like hiding behind a vending machine and getting it on), but there are others who are just longing to feel what it's like to be hugged or held once again after being away from them for so long. The PDA's that are more suitable for a motel room should be refrained from, especially in the presence of young children, but at the same time, when can a motel room be reserved? I know rules are there to be followed, and there are consequences for breaking them, but I have no intention of breaking them. I just want to see him again. That's all. It's been so long already.

Good luck with your struggle to find a normal balance during the time your guy is away, and I'll keep my fingers crossed that you'll have him back much sooner. If you need anything, I'm here and you can always PM me. I pretty much live on this site.

How long will he be there? Mine was only given 62 days in Malvern at the TVC, and we're almost to the halfway point of him finishing it. The TVC has been REALLY hard to find information on.

i have no clue how long he will be incarcerated . . . and that is the hardest part. he was sentenced to three years on a probation revocation for domestic battering 3rd degree, a charge he caught in the summer of 2006. he was sentenced on july 14 and was moved to diagnostics on august 21. from there, he was sent to randall williams correctional facility in pine bluff on september 5. as of now, his jacket will be pulled on november 24. from there, it will be decided if he will be granted a parole hearing at a later time. adc's website says his pe/te date is 2-4-09, but who freaking knows. i talked to adc today and they said that was just the date that he is first eligible to come home and that he may or may not be granted parole. right now, i am scrambling to round up recomendation letters on his behalf to be put in his file so they will be ready for his pre-hearing on the 24th. why does all this crap have to be so confusing???? any advice on what i can do to help? also, is anyone else familiar with randall williams CF? it used to be called jefferson county jail/correctional facility, but was recently renamed and i can't seem to find anyone who is familiar with it.

I'm not familiar with it, I'm sorry to say. I'm not real familiar with the ADC or DCC at all. I think they make it confusing so that we have to rack our brains and SHOW that we truly feel our loved one can change or has changed. Either way, it hurts us because we're out here on the other side of the fence, but we're on the inside with them as well.
I'm sure someone will come along who can answer your questions about the facility your husband is in. The most I'm able to do is lend a listening ear <eyes?> for others. If not for my stumbling across this site, I'd be a mental case by now. there are ALOT of supportive people here.
