    It's been 3 months since I've seen him

    and I'm getting so impatient. The paperwork is taking forever to get processed. I just wanna see him, I met him while working at the prison he's at as a medical assistant, so I've never even gotten to hug him

    I'm really missing him today :( more

    than usual,if that's even possible. Even our phone calls, which usually bring me comfort and strength, are leaving me missing him so much and wishing he was here just so I could hug him. He is on intake and it could be another 2 or 3 weeks, if not longer, before I can see him...

    Married 2 Months Then My Husband Is Arrested. And Like A Part Of Me Is Gone Too!
