In January, 2008, my son-in-laws father went to prison. I watched as he and my daughter struggled with the emotions that this brought to their family. Everyday something new occurred to upset their household. Their tears were endless. When my son-in-law lost his job, because the company he worked for "didn't have any work for him - after 14 years". Coincidence? Doubtful! The outside world doesn't understand that you, the family left behind didn't commit this crime - but you pay the price too.
When I began to see the grieving loss, I suggested a support group. He willing accepted............ then I found there weren't any. Eventually, I created one. A place that was safe; a place where everyone could talk and no one looked down upon them. Where everyone could learn to hold their head high; know that they carried no guilt and eventually were able to find inner peace.
AND SO CAN YOU!
