I believe Twiggy started this thread looking for other people with the same situation as she has.
Instead she gets smart azz crap from Bunnee and others. And advice she is already putting into play from people like you. Let's stick to the topic, ok? Let's not use this as yet another venue to beat on Twiggy.
Thank you BkByr, When I started this thread it was to bring in others who are going through the same thing that I am. I know that there will be people like bunnee who will put me down for doing so, but the ones like you who incourage me to continue far outweigh the ones who ridicule. I plan to continue this as long as I possible can.

<quoted text>No one is beating her. I have plenty of experience in the area she is talking about and I gave my opinion. What I said is right on target, but obviously not some rose colored picture she wants to see.
Alvin, I took off my rose colored glasses after the KC verdict was revealed. Now I need as many in the same circumstances that I am in, I thought we could lean on each other to help us all get through. There is no rose colered glasses for anyone to see, this a horrendous crime and us parents who are dealing with it need to speak to others just as AA familys need to speak with to have a support group in place to be there for one another.

BkByr - Didn't you even read what I wrote. I'm afraid that if she is looking solely for mother's of other serial killers in the GR area that read and post on Topix, she is going to be hard pressed. No wonder people get harsh with her.
I did read what you wrote. I also read this post. I don't believe she is looking soley for mothers of other serial killers in GR area.
After all how many of those could there be? I get the idea she is just looking to connect with parents of other convicted criminals. Seems to me like a normal thing to want to do.. I think she got two really good responses with the two links people gave her. Those are what will help her the most.

Please excuse my typing error in the previous post, it should have read...

Instead of...

Big difference---your son is coming home, her's never is. That is what she has to accept, you will have to accept that huge unknown of when.

Twiggy,
i don't have a child in prison but i have a sister that god help her will be heading there. i think is what you really need to concentrate on doing is forgiving him for the horrible crime he commited. You will never forget what he did but just know that you could raise a child with all of the morals you were brought up with or more and they will still make their one decisions, decisions that they don't stop to think how many lives they destroy with. Just let the good lord bring you peace and let your child go and hopefully he will find the lord.
I have nothing to forgive him for. I love him and will stand by him always. As for the victims family members, I miss Troy just as much as they miss their loved ones.

Troy is still alive. It's somewhat heartless of you to make this statement. While it may be true, the reason you miss Troy is quite different. Try not to cause other people more grief while dealing with your own.

I can't believe how mean people are.
Twiggy I looked everywhere for a friendly shoulder when my son was incarcerated and it wasn't to be found. I hope you have found someplace healthy to heal.

If you have a son (or loved one) in jail and want to find support and meet others who understand what you are going through, join this brand new website called forgotten families!

My son will be going to court,he have comitted
some B &E but this time, they will charges him &
stated that don't have no evidence but they will
try him b/c the officer stated they believe he did
it but I just don't know, I have pray to GOD every
day but it seem like he the product of SATAN, because it seem the more I pray for him the worse
he get. So I won't stop praying but I am on my last
nerve. I just wished GOD would give me a sign on
what to do instead of worry but I need someone to
talked to about why I feel this way since I feel
I should have abort him then maybe my trial & trib
ulation won't be this bad.

That is one of the most pathetic posts I've read in years. If you're not a troll, I pray for your soul. If you are, you deserve what you get.

You may not be beating on her, but others are. Opinions are welcome..insults are well, just that, insults. I don't know that some rose colored picture is what she is looking for. I get the idea she wants a little compassion and support from people who are in the same boat. Those that have experienced anything close to her situation will surely have a different perspective than the holier-than-thou attitudes
so many love to display on the other threads. If you have nothing to offer here why not just stick to the other threads where you can make yourselves feel good by reminding everyone how great you and your kids are.
right on.how ugly people can be yeah go to anther place so you can brag how nice you and you kids are

Twiggy, So sorry that you received these horrible posts by some of these disgraceful people. A judge once said there is always a 2nd victim and that is the family of the accused. Its sad that people want to put blame on an entire family for one person's decision. Wishing you all the best in healing.

The person pretending to be Troy's mom moved on, and if she were really his mom this post wouldn't help. It's opening an old wound.

Twiggy,
I read your postings. People that have NO business getting on these sites if they have nothing good to offer. I have a son in jail, and my heart is in pain. I understand what you are saying and what you are looking for in this site. Maybe it would be best if you look else where. This is not the place for us.
Don't waste your time. Take your pain to people that really KNOW and understand you.
I saw what people were telling, you, NO way I would post in here. After this...I will not come back to see what you answered.
Leaving this site....not coming back.
Too many times people say terrible things to others, and have no idea the harm they do to others. Good bye Twiggy, God be with you.
