The last holiday we will spend apart is over! This week I have been getting everything at home ready, I am leaving Friday night for a family vacation in Colorado and then traveling straight to his state to stay for the week and a half before he is released. So I only have another day and a half in my house! Today I painted a welcome home sign and packed up his clothes that he will wear on our trip back. I'm going tomorrow to get his new phone hooked up. Things have still been a little up and down, but we've had a good past couple of days and are enjoying each other and looking forward to everything. THIS IS THE LAST WEDNESDAY I WILL EVER SLEEP ALONE IN MY BED AGAIN!!

I was incarcerated for 8 years, and can’t imagine the increased transition anxiety your LO is experiencing after 14. He went in prior to smart phones, after all! Best advice I have is to “take it easy” at first, and put off events/celebrations for a bit to allow some safe space time for him to get comfortable, which can takes weeks and even months. Even the simplest experiences (visiting stores, restaurants, going out in public) come with a certain level of anxiety at first, it’s unavoidable, so just roll with it and have some fun in the process. It was fascinating for me to just drive around the old familiar places and marvel how much everything changes - roads, different stores, etc. One way to reduce the anxiety might be to let him know that the only thing planned is to take it easy and get the essentials done (drivers license, etc.) when he wants to tackle them. There will be a long period of time before one day many weeks down the road he’ll get the feeling of being free, and you’ll enjoy experiencing that tremendously. Best of luck, and congrats!
