Thank you everyone!

ALSO, we finally made our engagement public to friends and family. He had proposed to me while still in prison and I had said yes, but now that this all feels real we made it official and shared the news!

Thank you for posting your updates. I know I love seeing a positive and happy homecoming story.

Wow, the last month has flown by!

I met my MWI back in 2015 on a pen-pal site and we later found out that prior to his arrest we only lived 2 miles apart and his grandma had actually been a coworker of my mom...small world! So yeah we both believe we were meant to be...cheesy I know!

We spent over 3 years having our relationship consist of visits, phone calls, letters, e-mails, cards, pictures...just waiting, missing each other and dreaming of our future together.

He then got to spend 2 months in a halfway house which helped ease the transition of our relationship from prison to real world. He was allowed a cell phone so we got to talk more and actually go on real dates. The transition has surprisingly felt very natural and we are very comfortable together!

Then, on April 11, 2019 he was officially released and is now on supervised release for the next 4 years. It's been amazing and overwhelming! There is a lot that goes into the reentry process especially after a decade of incarceration!

So far he is doing great and I'm so proud of him! He gets along with his PO and is doing everything required for his supervised release: going to group therapy, individual therapy and AA/NA meetings weekly. He got health insurance, he got his drivers permit and has been taking care of his medical needs that were neglected while in prison. He is looking for a job and also a new place to live since his current living arrangement is temporary. He has also just been reconnecting with family and adjusting back to everything in the real world that he didn't have in prison. So yeah he has been busy and productive.

As far as our relationship goes, we are both very happy! The intimacy is incredible and we are very compatible. We both share a great sense of humor and enjoy our time together. It all just feels so right and yes 1 month isn't enough time to say we are a success story but right now I can say I'm happy I found him and waited.

He has quickly learned that although the real world is better than prison, it's also not all sunshine and rainbows. Outside of prison there are still problems, stress and obstacles to overcome. Things haven't been perfect his first month home...like when I drove him to a job interview and got a flat tire on the highway or when he was supposed to come over my house for Easter but instead we spent it in the ER because he had kidney stones! But we've learned we can handle bad stuff together and later laugh about it! Sure we occasionally bicker like most couples but no major arguments and majority of the time we are just two goofy lovebirds trying to figure out life.

This upcoming Tuesday he has a court case for something from before I knew him, he is planning to plead not guilty and take it to trial. So right now I'm praying we keep prison out of our life and continue with more monthly updates of our homecoming...

Sorry for the novel and THANK YOU for all the support this site offers, it's helped and continues to help me!
That is awesome...I wish you both the best. Life is great out here!

So glad you are posting your updates. My man's MRD is April 2020. I hope to be one of those people who posts good things when he gets out - that we are still together and doing great. You give us all hope!

I love this so much!!!! My mwi has been home 22 months and life is so good!!! It was worth the wait in so many ways. Im glad you come on to give the mwi members support. Mwi relationships can be really good or really bad. We hear a lot of the bad mostly. I know there are a lot of successes but we just kind of fade away into our happily every after. Keep coming back and encouraging everybody. Im so happy for you!!!

UPDATE: Just a quick check-in to celebrate that today marks 3 MONTHS of him being out! Things are continuing to go well, he is working a lot and we are both happy together! He has court on July 24th so I'll be sure to update again after that!
