I’m Kahlan, the SC Forum Leader. My best friend/fiancé/common-law husband is now in FCIYazooCity after a 3 year stay in various county jails and state prisons. PTO has been a life saver for me. The support, caring and information that I’ve found here have gotten me through the worst of times. I found this site through an Internet search and have been a member since July 2003. I enjoy being able to help members who are just starting this process and are not sure where to turn or how to handle the emotional aspects of being away from a loved one. And for me, being able to find quick information and talking with people who understand and are nonjudgmental has been invaluable. Thanks Fed-X for creating this wonderful community!

I found this site on an internet search. It has been a help in my keeping my sanity. I wish we had more traffic in this section as I love hearing from others in my same situation (being from the same area). I only recently joined but have found so much comfort and friendship from you guys. My son is at McCormick right now and has about 11 more years. He has been in SCDC since 1998 which was the day after his 17th birthday.

My name is Shawna and I'm from Ohio. My very good friend since High School has been incarcerated with the SCDC for 8yrs now. This is a wonderful site and I've been a member for 9 mos. now. The solidarity I've found here is unbelievable. I've meet a lot of good people here and hope to be aquainted with more.

Well, an internet search brought me here, and not a minute to soon!

I have a loved one in Evans CI and honestly don't know what I would do without this site! I have found answers to many questions and unbelievable support!

I get frustrated, mad, lonely, sad, but no matter what emotion I'm experiencing, PTO is ALWAYS here for me!

Hi, I am in upstate SC. I have a sibling in Kirkland. I found this site while surfing for information to help me understand what it really means to be in prison. I try to take his 17 yr old son, his 15 yr old daughter and his grandson to visit once a month or so. We went this Sunday and they wouldn't let his kids in to see him, because their ID's weren't changed in the system . I have found some really great stuff on this site and it shows me that we all are struggling to care for and protect our loved ones. Thanks.. all

Hi everyone, I'm in upstate SC, I found this site after searching the web. I have someone very very dear to my heart in Kirkland right now. Not in R&E but assigned to Kirkland. He has been in for 7 years and his max out is 8/05, although he wll not be free then. He has to go to a deportation hearing . I also have a very good friend in Evans. This site is very informative and has answered a lot of questions for me. Nice to be around so many people that don't think that just because you are an inmate you are a bad person. I hope and pray every day that he stays well and will come home to me soon.

Thank you so very much. My friend at Evan is doing ok and dealing with the awful conditions there. My beloved, at Kirkland, says it's nowhere near as bad as R&E. He trys to help out the new intakes, even though he can get into trouble for it. When they first come into R&E they only give them a few things which doesn't include envelopes anymore. He will give some of the new intakes envelopes to write home, because when he first went into R&E I didn't hear from him for 3 weeks and it almost killed me. He doesn't want other families to worry like I did.

Thanks for the welcome

Welcome Esmeralda! I'm glad you found our site. Your guy sounds like a great guy. No envelopes at Kirkland anymore! That is too cruel. The mail keeps me going. I was waiting by the window Saturday hoping the mailman would get through the ice. He did and I had 2 letters! This is a great site. Thanks for joining us!

I don't know how long they have been giving out packetts without envelopes but yes it's very cruel. My guy had to trade his watch to get more envelopes when he ran out. They held him over in R&E for 62 days!!!! Now that was cruel . I fianlly got to visit him last Friday and it was the first time in months. Our mailman couldn't make it thru the ice, so no letter Saturday .

Hi to Everyone! I stumbled on to this site by accident one nite and wondered why I didn't find it sooner! It has helped me to know other Parents are going thru much the same things I have been going thru. My son is at Mcdougall he has been incarcerated for over 2 yrs now and it was one of the hardest things I have ever faced but PTO has been the greatest support for me since I found it. Thanks to everyone.

I found this sight after doing a google search, in hopes of finding out something about the rumor that they are going to reduce the amount of time that inmates have to complete. I have a very special person in Manning, he has been there since Oct 2004, he has 2 yrs and 1 mth left. We use to date 7 yrs ago, and for some reason we went our seperate ways. After running into his sister and finding out that he was in prison I decided to write him thinking he would need a friend right now. We have been writing for 4 mths and have grown to be more than friends. We are looking forward to him coming home and a great future together. The first time I went to visit him I had not seen him in 7 yrs., now I see him just about every weekend.

Default Hi Everyone

Hi Everyone... I found this site during a search for support groups for families of inmates. My name is Diana, I live in Warren, Michigan and am engaged to a wonderful guy who is an inmate at Kershaw Correctional Facility in S.C. I have run into obstacle after obstacle from his mail to his caseworker, also I got info on how to calculate his work credits, but am still stuck. So if someone could help me I would sure appreciate it!
Hugs to all

Michael My Angel, come home soon

Diana

hello everyone, I also am new to the site. However, I feel that I am really going to enjoy it. You feel like no one knows your problems until you come here,and they are real people with real problems. I do have a lot of questions about SCDC that I hope ya'll will be able to answer. When I get them all together I'll post again. But I just wanted to say THANK you for taking time to read & respond. Your friend in christ
