INMATES LIVES MATTER
My wish when I decided to make this site was to educate the public on what it is like to be an incarcerated woman and what it is like to be a family (and friends) of a loved one who is incarcerated. In both instances, it is devastatingly life changing and heartbreaking. I want us to rise above the stigma of a person being an "inmate" to being a fellow human being on this journey of life; which we are all on together. And to understand that we are all fallible, we have all made mistakes in our lives and we all have regrets. But that also; we all have the ability to learn, change and grow given the right opportunity and support. In the best of circumstances, prison can be that opportunity to heal; not because of the prison system, but in spite of it. It can give all of us the opportunity for empathy, compassion and forgiveness - to care for "the least among us". Isn't that truly what life is about-to care about each other, to uplift each other and to share each other's burdens so that we all feel loved and supported on this journey. Isn't that what community is all about. The incarcerated are the lost and forgotten. We need to find them and give them hope.

ADOPT AN INMATE
If you would like to adopt an indigent inmate to give them support and hope through writing please CONTACT ME as I have a list of indigent inmates from all 4 facilities. They always need stamps and greeting cards that they can send to their families and friends. You can send them 10 assorted greeting cards and stamps. Help heal a broken angel. An Angel Adoption Certificatewill be mailed to you and a copy to the inmate..
This site is dedicated to incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women in Florida. The focus is on helping current and former inmates and to let them know that they are not forgotten and that we care.
