I've lied about my age for so long I'm not sure I remember how old I really am! Let's just say my heating pad is my new best friend and I can discuss adding fiber to your diet with the best of 'em!!

I'm taking the plunge announcing my age!!! I'm 59 at least until Dec. My son just turned 38 and I have a daughter who is 35. I have 7 Grandsons and no Granddaughters. My oldest Grandson is 14 - he's my son's. This has been such a hard 3 years I feel like I'm at least older than my mom who is 85.

The 3 older ones are all a year apart, we took a 2 year break before the last one. Divorced now and loving it, freedom at last! No grandchildren yet that I know of. Love 'em all even though they have all had a turn at the wheel driving me crazy !

I am 41 years old. I was also a teen mother. I have 3 boys. My oldest is 24 and is incarcerated. My golden boy is 18 and my other son (the next golden boy) is 16. I have also adopted my grandson (the incarcerated son's child), and he is 4 years old. I have a beautiful grandaughter that is 2 (she has a different mother that is awesome). I have always found it to be amazing how different each child can be!!

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!

Welcome Just a Mum. I must have read this thread right around my birthday and thought heck with it who cares how old I am? I am among the senior members of our little family here so show some respect. (lol) I am 59 and my son is 39. I also have a 28 year old daughter who will soon be working for our local police dept as a CSI so we have the whole spectrum covered. My daughter and my 2.5 year old grandson live with us and that has helped me get through some of these rough times. I'm the office manager for a neurologist that specializes in seizure disorder and sleep disorder.

I just turned 40, and have a 22 yr old in the bop system for the second time. First time 8 mos, second time, 5 yrs. He was an 18 yr old when he first offended, a white collar, non violent crime, and not into drugs. He reoffended like 6 mos after the halfway house, while living at our home. I am so sick of having our stuff taken...our computers, disks of pics , etc. I totally support him, send money, tried to put him through college at age 18, and he dropped out and didnt tell us. This is amazingly hard....
I dont know if this is the right forum, but a child that just turned age 18, arrested for hacking and getting 8 mos....and he would not snitch...where others did, and there were many others under age 18, like 17, and they take my son like 2 mos after he turned age 18 (the first time)

Then he gets out Halluluyah,

and immediately reoffends...More internet trickery.

The judge, at his sentencing, talked about what an arrogant thief he was...

I just wish we had a decent atty, who talked about how a teenager does not have a fully formed brain...
how they have no impulse control, etc

I feel a little guilty that i did not step up and say all this when my son was facing his second sentencing. Anyone else go through that?

Default I am..

Until may 21st 43 years young then I will turn 44 !!
I have 2 sons who also have birthdays this month Steven will be 26 may 16th & Coty will be 21 May 22nd.
I have been a business owner most of my adult life owning salons (tanning,hair,nails) until i was involved in a car accident that caused a lesion on my brain and took me out of the work force and placed me in a lazy boy most of the time so that I dont injure myself when I fall down from the many seizures I have everyday
Hopefully, these wonderful doctors at the U of M will fix me this week <praying>

I also have 3 beautiful grand babies 6,5,2 they belong to my oldest son. We are not allowed to see the older 2 thanks to a vindictive young woman who uses children as pawns in her nasty little games.

I found PTO in a google search and thank God for it everyday!!!
