Hello,
My name is julie and my father is currently in atlanta georgia.
He is in the middle of the fun transfer game though...lol.
We requested marion, Il and at one time he was told he was being sent to taledega (mispl?), Alabama. Who knows where we'll end up. He was sentenced to four years.

Meanwhile I will be taking my mother to Alderson, WV August 21. That is where she will begin her sentence of 1yr+1day. She is the one who told me about this site and made me promise to use it frequently while they're away.
This is my first post, but the site seems promising for my bleak world.


Jules

Well my friend was just sent from county to Englewood FCI in Colorado which is literally 5 minutes from my house. But before I could even see him (only talk to him once) he was moved to Florence FCI which is now about 2 hours away. Not bad, I have friends that live there. He is now much closer to his parents that would drive 300 miles to visit him every weekend! And I do mean every weekend, they haven't missed not a one since he got locked up in Feb. God bless them, that is what I call unconditional love!!!!!!!!!! They will now have only about 1/2 of that distance to travel. I am so happy for them!

Murphy's, you can find information about COleman FL in several threads, including these:

Probably in September I'll visit my son in Coleman. It is a good place.
Best wishes,

My love is in Butner NC he has 2 1/2 years left on a 16 year sentence. We are trying to get him moved to a camp in NY..it is like pulling teeth. He is 530 miles away from home. They are claiming that according to their map it is under 500 miles so he is within his home territory. We are still looking and hoping they will transfer him.....I miss him and love him. Welcome all newcomers to the site, I pray for all of you as we take this journey together. Hopefully laws will be revisited and changed so the prisons are not filled with people that deserve opportunities to put their lives to more constructive things then what the prison system has to offer. There are many people still sitting in prison that have overpaid the price. My love has done enough time for a drug charge!!! One day at a time!

Murphy's, the FDC Miami is a temporary center where prisoners are kept until sentenced. Then they are sent to other facilities. You will feel a great relief when he is transferred, because the FDC is a closed building, they don't have a job, no open air activities and not much room. Coleman is a large facility, modern and well organized, with plenty of sports fields, many activities, wide dormies (at least in the Low), aerobics lanes, etc. Most important, he will have a job, miserably paid, but sufficient to keep him busy. Nothing is worse than being in prison without anything to do.

Un abrazo,
Andrés

That's nice if he can be close. We spent many years 1,000 miles apart and it is so great to have him in the same state. You DO live in Texas right? My husband was at Bastrop many years ago, pre-trial, but they kept him in the hole the entire time.

Hi. Do you know if Terminal Island FCI still has marriage workshops? A friend of mine was married to a guy there years ago and they had these marriage workshops where the couple could spend the whole day inside together, getting real close (if you know what I mean) and working on their relationship. Is that a thing of the past? They don't have it at Sheridan FCI. Zelda

My fiance' is in Florence FCI in Colorado. I am in Phoenix. Long way to go, but I go once a month. I talked to some man at BOP headquarters and inquired about transfers. He informed me that they are not a travel agency.

Hello All,
It's sooooooooo sad to see so many so far away from family ! I am 1000 miles from my brother and it's REAL hard not to be able to see him often. After two years my recent visit was bitter-sweet ! Leaving was awful and my heart broke in a thousand pieces ! Tears just won't stop !
My brother is at FMC Devens - MA. I am hoping to find someone close by who would be willing to visit him once in awhile. That would be great if we all helped each other out and visit inmates who are close to us !?! There are so many who get no visits due to distance !

Love & Prayers To All !

Coral

That might be a good idea - except that the feds, as I understand it, won't allow anyone to visit who isn't immediate family or can prove (with two signed affidavits by others) they had a relationship with the person before they went into federal prison. (Religious volunteers are an exception I think.) Zelda

My husband will be at Coleman Low beginning 9/5. He is ill with Parkinson's disease and other serious medical problems. I have read all the previous posts regarding Coleman but if anyone has further information could they please either pm me or reply here regarding this place. I need to know what type medical facilities they have, etc. He is on many meds and I am worried sick he will not receive them,although he has over 4 different physicians letters and all his medical records. It is just so scary because he has trouble with balance, "freezes up", etc.

This is a wonderful site and I am so happy I found it. My husband will have 18 months and knowing there are such caring people to talk with here makes all the difference in the world to me.
