What a great idea! I loved this first issue, especially the interview with nevaeh. As the mother of an addict, my heart breaks for her but I admire her strength and her dedication to helping others. She is one special lady! I will be sending this issue to my son for sure!

I am beyond impressed!! The Pasture people story had me rolling! Neveah's interview had me in tears! I just found this part of the forum and didn't even know Neveah existed until last week! I had no idea what her story was, and I respect her all the more after reading it. She is my new "hero!!" The "you know you're the wife or girlfriend of a prisoner" literally made me laugh out loud....and I have a son in prison...it was still hilarious though!!

The newsletter as a whole was extremely informative and very professionally done. Congrats on a job well done!!

I just have to go ahead and mention that I feel so fortunate for finding PTO! It's amazing to see the site growing and developing into more just within the last year of being a member. I can't wait to print out and send this first issue to B. Thank you for everything!

Love, love, love it! As soon as I buy more ink I'm going to print and send to hubby. PTO was a source of light for me during some pretty dark times. I hope that it will be the same for others.

Just a tip, I found that if you print the Word doc rather than the PDF file, it prints without using so much ink for the background.

What a great article I download end it and I am sending one to my husband. I am very glad I found PTO. I have gotten a lot of helpful advice from a lot of people including the moderators. I plan on continuing to be apart of this site even after my husband comes home.

Ha, I couldn't wait to get a copy into Sebastian's hands. I used Fed-Ex online printing and delivery service. Pricey, but he's gonna love it and considering all he does for me = priceless!

I'm glad everyone is enjoying the newsletter. I have read it several times now of course, and I still laugh and cry in the very same places. I want to thank all those that made this endeavor possible. It means so much to me and to everyone who serves and is served by PTO. Many blessings to one and all.
