My king is in FCI Forrest City, AR and I'm in Atlanta, GA. He's been in Arkansas over a year now. He recently tried to get a transfer closer to home (we're both from Alabama) but it was denied because of a pending charge.

tnt,

Getting married won't get your boo transfered closer to you. A friend of mine was in FCI Lexington, Kentucky when he married his girlfriend earlier this year. They are both from Alabama & share a child. Now the BOP has moved him to FCI Texarkana, Texas. Bottom line is...BOP doesn't care about families at all.

Thanks Diane.
Hopefully someonw will read my message with a loved in Atwater. I appreciate your reply. I can't believe I never found this site before, I've been going through the prison system with my son for 10 years now...alone....now I don't feel so all alone. Your in Baltimore? I lived there for a year. Hope to hear from you again.

I just want to send a message to everyone on PTO. I just read alot of the messages last night...and it really had an affect on me. It made me feel like crying.........so many.....so alone....Thank God we have eachother on this site. I don't know about the rest of you....but for me...it's nice to not be alone. I never tell my son if I cry for him or my arms ache to hug him because he has enough to think about in there..I don't want him to have to deal with my emotions. I just let him think how big and strong I am. But, in reality I miss him more than anything in this world. I worry about him constantly and situations he could get into. So far, God has answered my prayers and kept him safe. Now, I have other people to talk to who are going through the same things..........THANKS PTO. God Bless each and everyone of you and your loved ones.
