Update on Attorney visit

Well, things went well! Attorney says he can help and there are things she can do; just one hurdle to overcome; retainer fee! If anyone has any suggestions, I am open! I have a few ideas and things going on in my mind but can always use help. He is "appalled" that this has happened and I only shared with him a little bit of the information that has happened. But again, he says that this can be done; it's going to take time, money and commitment! He asked me and the other person helping me for our commitment to be there and involved every step of the way which we both assured him we would be. So, we are still back at the retainer! Prayer, prayer, prayer! Thanks for the encouragement AND please keep this on your heart and mind!

Please send postive thoughts this way!

The meeting with the attorney is tomorrow! Please send good thoughts this way for Thalia and her children. There has been so much happening with the kids that it's been difficult to keep things updated here but just a little bit of information for those who are watching!

Saturday, November 1, there was an emergency with Thalia's children so I called CMCF to get a message to her. The first time I called, I was transferred to the Chaplain and got voice mail. I hung up and called back and explained I needed to get this message to her immediately and was told that I would have to leave a message on the voice mail and wait for the Chaplain to contact me. Guess when the Chaplain called me! Yesterday afternoon! Of course, by that time I had spoken with Thalia and we were about 4 or 5 steps down the road from that urgent situation and into the next. I did inquire about hours and availability of the Chaplain to inmates and was told that there is NOT a Chaplain there 24/7; their hours are Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.; Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. It kind of makes you wonder!
