Default WI mini introductions--get to know your neighbors

I got this idea from another Forum Leader. So here it goes:
My name is Wendy I'm married to an inmate at Waupun Correctional Institution. He has been gone for a year and a half. We have been married going on 4 years. We share a daughter and I have 2 boys from before him. I work in an alzheimers home. I live in Fond du Lac.

So tell me a little about you.

Update: I am no longer with my ex who is still in Waupun Correctional. I no longer live in Fond du Lac.

My name is Lisa and I live in Madison, WI. I work in the military insurance industry, and also at a woman's clothing store. I am looking for a third job now; to work on the weekends. My relationship to the prison system is by Trey, who is in Dodge Correctional in Waupun. He has a little over 2 years left, and we have known each other for 6 1/2 years now.

I'm in Madison, my fiance is in Dodge. I'm working telemarketing for charities and raising my almost 2 year old little boy, waiting for my baby to get out in 21 months so that we can get married and live happily ever after and never go back to our old lifestyle.

My name is Robin and I live in Appleton. I'm a warehouse cordinator. My husband is at Waupun Correctional. We have 5 children and 2 grandsons. He has been in prison since 1990. If any of you are aware of the DA Scandal in Winnebago County, my husband's case was one of Paulus's high profile cases. Richie's case is now being reviewed by the state for misconduct! Very Good sign that he will be home soon. We have 5 children and 2 grandsons.

My name is Amanda and I live in Milwaukee. My man just got home from doing 2 years. He was in Dodge, CCI, JCI, Black River Falls, and then he completed the boot camp program in St. Croix. We're still adjusting to him being home. A lot changed while he was gone, but I always visited as much as they'd let me, and I'm happy to have him back

My name is Tanya and I live in Pocatello, Idaho. My love of my life is incarcerated in Fox Lake. Cliff and I just celebrated our 1 yr. anniversary on the 9th of this month. This year has been an accomplishment for the both of us and I would not trade it for the world. I have learned things about myself that I never thought possible. The most important of all is that no matter what, love will prevail and a love that risks nothing, is worth nothing. Just when you think you can go no further, you fight a little harder. In the end it is all worth it.

Hey everyone

Well, I live in southeastern WI but my fiance is actually in prison in GA. We had just moved here almost 2 years ago. He's been gone a year now and is actually up for parole this month so I hope he will come home to our family in WI soon!! We have a daughter together who is 4 months old, yes I was 2 months pregnant when he had to go back to GA and serve time. I also have a son who will be 4 in October.
I work in the printing industry... wooo hoo! Actually in sales so it's not all that bad.
Just wanted to come in and join my neighbors! I'm the forum leader for GA so I'm around ... alot. LOL Oh and did i say... Wenny rocks!

Red face Hi all

Hi there... My name is Carol and my brother is currently at Oskosh Correctional Facility. He's due to be released in April 2005. I live in the upper peninsula of Mich. so dont get to see him as much as I'd like to. Im new to this forum and just trying to figure out where I fit... My brother is interested in information on Interstate compact material because he wants to come to Mich. where all his family is when he is released. So, if anyone has any tips for me, I'd be greatful.

Thanks

My name is Kris and my husband and I are in the process of divorce. He is currently in Oakhill Correctional. We are trying to at least save our friendship. We have known each other for almost 15 years and have a wonderful 10 year old son. It is nice to know that there are others out there. This is a great resource!

I'm new at this prison stuff. My brother is in Dodge so I haven't got to see him for a few months. We're hoping he'll be transferred soon; preferably to Jackson. His sentencing came as a complete surprise to my family. His PSI officer told my parents that she was recommending 6-8 months in a county jail. But the judge gave him 4 years in prison. I still haven't been able to adjust to that. Needless to say, my family has lost our faith in the justice system. He has left behind a 2 year old son and a wife with brain cancer & partial paralysis, neither of which was taken into consideration. I'll end my tirade now or I'll go on forever. I'm upset.

Hi there! I am totally feeling you! My family & I also have lost all faith in our justice system! We didnt ask for this, but it is we who have to deal with the hurt. My brother is awaiting transport to Dodge & then to who knows where? You're in my thoughts!

My name is Dena, my boyfriend is currently being held in the Milwaukee Secure Detention Facility for parole violation. I am not sure what the outcome will be. I pray that he will be released and not revocated. I am just waiting on that long awaited hug.
Feeling alone, no support from my family or his.

Default Intro

My name is Stacy, I am a full-time accounting student and my fiance Rick is currently being held in Dane County Jail. After me and his mother talked to his PO it was pretty certain that he would get revocated and his attorney said the same thing. He waived his revocation hearing on valentines day and now he is waiting a sentancing date. His PO is asking for 18 months at the most. We hope he can get less time. Everything is just so up in the air right now. I am worried and scared, I hate not knowing what is going to happen. He was doing great for 3 years and then some runaway got mad because he wouldn't "hook-up" with her and then she claimed he raped her so now he has a new case which is why he was revoked. She went to the police 8 months after this alleged incident happened. She has run away from her group home again and she has given two different reports with a lot of loopholes and things just don't add up. So he is revoked now because of all that. I am trying not to be judgemental and I worry because she is obviously a troubled young girl who needs help. I just can't believe his life is being ruined over this. I love him so much and I can't stand to see him go through this. We had plans of getting married and having children. Now we have no idea what is going to happen. We are considering starting the process to get married while he is in, but if it is only 18 months we are thinking of maybe waiting til he gets out. We just really want to be together and can't wait. This forum has been really helpful and has eased my mind about a lot of things. I am so glad to know that I am not alone.

God bless you all and thank you.

Default Hugs to all my fellow wisconsin-ites

Hello all...I've been a member a long time now and never knew about this Forum...YEAAAAH!

I came to the site years ago under another name...long story...I was engaged to a man that was in Waupun (with him 6yrs) he got out and six months later caught a new charge facing 65 years...during the time between arrest and sentencing I found out a lot of things that led to our break-up...

However the Lord works in mysterious ways and now I have met someone through a penpal site and we have fallen DEEPLY in love. He's currently in Kettle Moraine Correctional and awaiting a decision from the parole board. If he's given the grant he'll be home in April...If not his MR date is October 12th of this year. As I'm typing this my stomach is doing flips because I'm going to visit him for the first time today (t-minus 12 hours) We've sent lots of pictures back and forth but this will be our first face to face!!!

I've been around the block when it comes to the prison system and am willing to answer any questions that I can....

Much love to all of you and your loved ones behind the wall!

Heather
