My BF and I met for the first time about 9 years ago. He was a grill cook and I was a waitress in a local restaurant. We dated for about a year and a half, but he was 18 and I was 21 and had a child, so we were at two different places in our lives. We broke up, but we would run into each other from time to time and catch up. This went on for about 7 1/2 years. Durring that time we both married other people, and had children, seperated and divorced. In February of 2008 we ran into each other again at a time when we both happen to be fresh out of our failed marriages. We decided that we would just keep each other company and help each other from being lonely, but that neither of us was looking for a relationship. However, our hearts out witted our minds and in no time at all we were in love with eachother.
Durring the time that we were apart, my BF had gone through a lot of different personal issues and made several bad choices that resulted in him serving jail time and being on probation. In April he violated his probation by failing a drug screen and in November was sentenced to 9 months in the county jail. His release date is August 17, 2009.
It has been really hard for me to be away from him. Despite his knack for making very poor choices, he is a very good person and loves me more than I have ever been loved by anyone before. In the months that we were together he had begun to make a great deal of progress in the right direction. He was setting goals and making major changes in his life. It breaks my heart to know that he was finally ready to take a positive direction in his life and now he is at a stand still. The only consolation to this situation is that once he is out we will be able to put this all behind us and move forward with our lives with out any hinderance from his past.
He has now been in for 5 1/2 weeks and I have sent him a letter every single day he has been there and I go to visit him every weekend. The letters have been just as comforting to me as they have been to him. I will continue to do what ever I can to support him and keep him encouraged. I know when he can finally come home it will be one of the happiest moments.
