My son just got picked up as a fugitive in a different state. I stopped talking to him last year cause he's been in and out of four different jails and jus continues to make poor choices. I feel bad for him but he's put me through he'll and I simply can't muster the energy to go thru this shot again. I know he's probably going to get a lot of years. And think I need to take it slow since he is very manipulative. I asked other family members to write and I think I'm going to just send a card telling him I love him. I am a little nervous cause the reviews for that jail are quite bad, thou

Your welcome,

Well when he first gets there maybe the essentials like toothed paste/brush a spoon a cup things like that so maybe $75 to start if you can afford it. Then to help him he don't need much maybe $25 a month and that is generous. And this is my honest opinion. Be good to yourself mom.

Well I feel your pain. I tto once let my mom down and that hurt more that how it hurt myself by doing it. Your son is probably wild and hard and hasn't found ground or foundation in his mind nor his life. You know the best thing in the world you could do for him is ask the jail to take him a bible or send him a prayer so he can get that tiny shake in something to focus on or about.But don't be scared for him as so much as to only hurt yourself. May GOD bless you and him with peace and comfort especially you momma. Goodnight.

Thank you, Robin for your post. It means so so very much to me. I don't want to be scared for him cause I know then it just tears me down from the inside out. I'm happy that the process is starting for him and hopefully he can get thru this and be a better man afterwards. I need to go on living my life and also want to be there for him. I just asking others to write him, too. Today, I'm going to mail a card and a little funds. What amount would you suggest be a good amount each month, but not enabling him.
