Not that it matters, he is over a 24hr drive so I couldn't visit anyway, but I get so nervous whenever he moves. And only being able to communicate through letters is the WORST right now. I just need to hear him tell me he's okay. I wish I could just hug him one time. It's been over six years since I've seen him
Lots of hugs to you GracieLynn! I hope your LO has a speedy recovery, with all things considered. Stay strong and continue to keep your letters flowing as these are a godsend for all our LO. I hope hes able to contact you soon and give you some peace of mind that hes ok.

Thank you!!! I've been writing him every day, but I feel so stupid telling him about my day to day while he's going through all of this, but if I don't, they'd just be letters full of me asking if he's okay over and over. I hate snail mail, feels like we're always 10 steps behind each other. Fingers crossed the mail man brings me something from him tomorrow!!! Much love to you and your LO

Default Newbie... Heartbroken Momma

My son, my 1st born, is facing a long term. He's a 1st time offender, but it was a doozy. I am not making light of the situation. He messed up and he messed up bad. From what I gathered in other posts, I believe I'm not to disclose too much on a current case, correct? I will say (hope it's ok) it's a capital offense. LWOP or DP was a horrible possibility. I am trying to accept this whole thing and accept that the prosecutor waived DP. That is blessing #1. The fact he is even offering my son a plea bargain is blessing #2. I am not happy with the what was offered but, it is still a blessing. Blessing #3 is he will be allowed to request parole after serving 50% rather than being required to do the complete term. (Praying the judge will agree to the terms). I know all these things are blessings. But my baby!!!😭 He has been in county since September 2016. I saw on the website, he is scheduled for plea/final announcement OCA in a couple of weeks. I'm afraid. It is finally about to commence. I honestly don't know exactly what this court appearance entails. Is this where he asks the judge to accept the plea bargain he was offered? Will this be televised? (It's a big case in our hometown) I still hurt and wail when I think on the fact that I walked my son in to turn himself in!!! It is, to this day, the hardest, most painful thing I have ever done. I couldn't allow the Marshals to hunt him down. I gave birth to twin boys Aug 31 (Wednesday). Released Friday without them. (They were 6 weeks early, I spent 2 months in the hospital on bed rest prior to their arrival)... I get home, and literally the very 1st thing I see on Facebook is the Police Chief doing a televised brief, underneath his photo is the description of what he was saying and I see my son's name as a wanted person for this crime. Needless to say, I have not had a normal or easy postpartum recovery. Depression, anxiety and my seizure disorder is in full throttle and has been since that day.
I honestly don't know why I chose to post this. Maybe subconsciously I am crying out for help. My SO hasn't made this any easier either. Don't misunderstand...I have NO DESIRE TO DO MYSELF HARM. But, I do feel like I'm drowning, dying. I have so much in my heart to attempt to let out, but I won't drag this out any longer. I apologise for the long-winded post.

There is nothing harder, but once the plea is actually accepted it get easier. You will still be brokenhearted, but you will less stressed knowing the outcome. I will be praying for you and your son. Stay as strong as you can. Hugs.

Default Alone

Reaching out, feeling isolated and the idea that someone understands would be a comfort. I miss my husband so much it hurts. Everyday there's a list of things I have to do, decisions that used to be his have now become my to do list. When my first husband died, no one expected me to do more than I was ready for, but this isn't a death. It's a loss so great no words can explain it. My husband is my one true love. He is the only person that I have given my whole heart to. I miss him every second of everyday.
