Default Parole decision wait time...to hope or not to hope?

It's that time again - my fiancé had his review a few weeks ago for parole. And we have about 1 month before they come back with an answer.
He has so much faith and is convinced that this is it and they are going to give it to him.

I want him home more than anything and while I think he should have a good chance after completing 20 of 25 years (he originally came up for parole in 1997, so this is the 7th review/he has also accumulated enough good time that he has credit for 45 years), dozens of programs, getting several degrees and the amount of support letters in his file saying now is the time for him to come home, please let him come home...most of me is sooo scared to hope...I try not to even think about it.

He needs me to have faith - I'm having trouble finding it - simply because I want it so badly and I know he'll be devastated if he doesn't make it and one of us needs to be able to keep things together...

These days - when he brings it up - I kind of try to avoid the conversation...and he tells me to get my hopes up because he's gonna be coming home.

I don't know what to say or do ... Any suggestions???

It's good to be hopeful, but you never know. It may happen. It may not. you'll have to deal with it either way. One day at a time.

He is right you have to keep the faith at all times and put god in your heart and he will definitely see you through it. Just pray and pray about it and i guarantee you that he will answer it for you

WoW! I dont even know you or him and Im already hoping for you both lol. I am so hoping the search feature is back up and running when you get the outcome because I get thrilled to see someone (long term or lifer) make parole.

Prayers for a yes!

Thanks - I will defiantly let everyone know the outcome - If it is yes...I'm going to be relieved and thrilled....If it is no... there will be outrage...because he has come so far and it doesn’t make sense anymore, everyone says do the time…pay the crime…I think he’s paid it.

Thats very disappointing, dont they tell him? In my state they tell the inmate then he tells family. I will keep you both in my prayers.
