So my husband called me yesterday afternoon to let me know they had received his green sheet & it wasn't the news we were hoping to hear. He told me now he is headed to Rockview Prison to serve 9 months on a PV, we are hoping he gets to stay there since it is closer to home, but he asked the one parole agent who came to see him & he doesn't see why he wouldn't be able to. At first when he told me I guess my hopes of him either coming home or going to a half way house affected me more than I thought they would, I knew the possibility that he could do the 9 months but it still really hurt my heart to hear that he's going to be away from his son & I longer than he already has been. But I got it out of my system, & I like to see the positive in everything, at least this is better financially then county jail, it's only 10 minutes away from the county jail he is at now, we get contact visits, & I get to finally kiss & hug him after these long drawn out 3 months. I know 3 months isn't long to some, but it seems forever for someone you love being away.. This is where God needs him to be at in his life, he has impacted a bunch of imates already in the county jail, he holds his own bible studies every night at first only 3 people were showing up & now a mere 10 people are coming to hear him speak the good Word! I said maybe he now needs to move on to a bigger populate place to touch more lives than he already has, although i'd love more than anything for him to be at home with us, this is where the good Lord needs him! But now I have a lot on my plate again, like telling everyone the news, including breaking to our son that daddy won't be home anytime soon BUT now when we visit he'll get to give him hugs & even do activities with him which will be a lot better for an 8 year old child than sitting in a little room behind glass & talking on the phone!
I also have questions to you ladies who are familiar with the Rockview Prison rules:
1. What can I or can't I wear in the visits, for instance, can I wear a belt, & I also have a knee brace I have to wear at all times & it does have metal in it, will I be able to wear that?
2. He's on a PV so when he gets there do you know if he'll be in lock up for 7 days or will he go straight to population?
3. When he was in county I was able to take cash to the jail to put on his books, how does it work for the prison?
4. How long until the phone & visitors lists are approved?
They are the only questions I can think of at the moment, if anyone could possibly answer some if not all of my questions I will greatly appreciate it, also I am coming from Lewistown, Pennsylvania if anyone knows of the area, so if anyone in or around my area would ever like to car pool let me know, I would be glad to help out as much as I can Thank you all & God bless!
