RVR -- Ridiculous

Well, Thalia got an RVR. She's been harassed since she received her green and whites so we figured it was only a matter of time before they found something or made up something to write her up about. And they did! She got an RVR for smoking. Well she says she wasn't smoking, cigarettes were laying on top of locker but this officer was determined to give her an RVR. Please say a prayer about this because it could cost her the opportunity to go to the family house with her kids. I will keep you updated as I find out more. Thanks foe your continued support and prayers. Sondra

Visiting with the kids!

It's getting close to the 6 months where Thalia will get to go to the family house and spend some quality time with her children. Thanks goes out to all for the support and continued belief in Thalia. She's a strong woman and mother and child of God. I will update you all soon.

Upgrade in Classification

Well, I have good news! Thalia was upgraded to "A" Custody. I know most of you don't know what that means but it's really great news for Thalia. It means that she will get to go spend weekends and week long visits in the family house with her children. We had hoped to be able to have her spend her first week with her children this summer but she has to be in this custody for 6 months before she can stay in the family house so I guess we can wait a few more months. She will get to finally spend some real quality time with her children as a mom. She has worked hard to get this and we are grateful that she has been allowed to receive her "green and white" pants. Please feel free to send her a note of congratulations or just a hello! She loves to hear from people.

Since she's graduated from upholstery, she's hoping that she will be able to become a tutor for that class or start working in the Chaplain's office. Please continue to keep that in your thoughts for her. We know that God will show us where he wants her as long as she is within the walls of MDOC.

I know I've saying this for a while but I am sincerely hopeful that I will be able to post news soon about her pursuit of freedom.

Well, here we are!

Thalia is doing well! She graduated Friday, March 4, 2011 from upholstery classes at CMCF. I was able to attend and I have to say it was truly an experience. It was a completely different atmosphere than on visitation day. The staff was very nice and helpful. I am so proud of her in her accomplishment. I know it's hard under the circumstances but all of the ladies who graduated whether to get their GED or from Cosmetology prevailed and are exceptional for doing so.

As far as Thalia's case, again, we are still fighting for her freedom. We just keep chipping away a little at a time until we break through that wall. And it's coming!
