Default What Is Your Age?

It is evident that there are several generations posting in this forum. We are all parents of inmates, but due to our differing ages we find ourselves at various points in our lives. For example, some are young with small children to raise.Some are middle-aged and still employed. Some are retired with older children in prison. Each presents its own unique set of circumstances.

Therefore, it might be interesting to observe how many fit into each age category and help us to find others close to our own ages.

Hi tanya702..... My daughter will be going to prison here in california...She will be 29 August 9th...she has 4 wonderful boys. Maybe you can give me some info. about the prison. This is all new to us. I'm so proud of how my daughter is handeling herself...we have a very strong faith and she walked away from it for a few years, she is building up her faith again.
I hope to connect with you soon.

Wink Thought I had paid my dues ~~~~

Hi ~ I am 63, and to be honest I thought I had paid my dues. My youngest daughter (43) was at ORW-Marysville, and currently is at FPRC-Columbus.

She has a "Judicial Release" hearing scheduled for April 8th , and has a "Warrant to Convey" posted on her case as well. I had to look at her case on-line to see for myself, and it is there.

I am praying that since they are bringing her back for court that it means there is a good posibility of being released, but I am not counting my chickens too soon though, and do not want the rug being pulled out from under me.. I am still praying for her though!

Alright, so it appears that I am the one who is older than dirt. I will turn 64 the 16th of March. Just celebrated my 45th wedding anniversary with dear Hubby the 15th of Feb. I guess what is more important than age is if you still enjoy life and can contribute to this earth and your fellow man in some way. While the body is heading south I find that I am happier with myself than I've ever been. I have 7 children with the oldest 40 and youngest who turned 17 today. There are 11 grandkids so far with oldest 8 and youngest 1. What fun that is!


Happy Birthday Wendy!!

Default gray hair and proud of it

I guess is true confession time: I'm 59 yr old; my son who is a 'guest' of the DOC of Wisconsin for 5 yrs. will be 38 in two days; my daughter is 35 and I have 7 grandsons. I work full time as a switchboard operator at our local hospital.

End of Confession!

I'm 58, my husband is 64. We've been married 38 yrs. and are still crazy about each other and our kids, thank The Lord! Our youngest, age 30 (others are 33 and 37) has been in since he was 29, will be out in the summer or fall of 2011. I couldn't do this w/o PTO friends of all ages!
