Default Intro - dbs from South Africa

Good Morning Everyone.

As you can see from my title I am from South Africa. I have a family member in jail here in SA and was just searching the net and came across this wonderful site. Here in SA we don't have any support systems at all for prisoners or their families.

It would be wonderful if I could chat here with you guys. Yes I know we have totally different situations and systems, but I think our emotions and heart aces and dreams and hopes are all the same, no matter what country we live in.

My nephew is serving a 63 year sentence and I am planning to visit him in the near future. Will keep you guys up to date on what is happening on my side of the world.

Good luck to everyone here on the forum.
