Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas, United States
I'm mom to 3 beautiful children, wife to a wonderful man who is the love of my life and grandmother, "Nonna", to a beautiful grandson. Like too many others out there, I am the mother of an addict. I am still learning to deal with things in a healthy way and have a life inspite of the insanity that addiction produces. I am very blessed to have found this community of amazing people that share so much of themselves with us all through their blogs. You are all an inspiration to me. I share your struggles, your pain, your joys and all your hopes. I pray for the addicts still out there suffering and for the people that love them the most. My heart felt thanks to each & every one of you! May God's mercy and grace be with us all, Kristi

The Barber Amendment - Federal Good Time Bill

The BARBER Amendment is a bill to amend Title 18 U.S.C. Section 3624(b)(1) as follows: by striking the number "54" in the first sentence as it appears and inserting in lieu thereof the number "128"; and in the same sentence, by striking "prisoner's term of imprisonment" and inserting in lieu thereof "sentence imposed" .

Note: The Barber Amendment has not been introduced. FedCURE is seeking bipartisan support for the bill in the 112th Congress.

Please click on the above link and sign this petition...it's very quick and only takes a minute. Also, please pass this along to those you know. YOUR SUPPORT IS GREATLY NEEDED AND VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!!


  1. I will do it right now. How are you? How is J?

  2. Thank you so much Tori!! I’m doing fairly well and Jacob, other than being stir-crazy, is doing pretty good also, considering the circumstances. I am planning on updating my blog soon….I’ve been toying with the idea of posting the news articles that this crazy situation produced….this came as quite a surprise and of course the media sensationalized everything to some degree, as the media is known to do….we were all pretty shocked. Thanks again for signing this petition, we need all the help and support we can get.

  3. I hope you do! I often think of you and Jacob and wonder how you are all doing. I am not sure if he is in Prison??? I know it was a lot of bad stuff but I couldn't quite figure it out from your posts!

  4. i am the mother of a wonderful son; i couldn't ask for a better child..he just got caught up in the wrong thing..meth, and now i have lost my ONLY child to a 15 year prison sentence. he wouldn't hurt a soul and has a heart of gold. i feel as if i have been sentenced too. will i live long enough to be with my child again? this bill HAS TO BE CHANGED. he is not a criminal, just a person who made a bad mistake, and has learned his lesson. please do something about this...just a mother with a broken heart!

    1. I know this man who got 20 year in federal prison. he's been in prison for already 11 years and he's 36 years old so yep he's been i there since he was 25. we have been friends every since i could remember. he's a very loving caring person. just don't see how they can just lock them up and throw away the key. i know how you feel it's so hard.. if your reading this please help us get this federal good time bill in to congress

  5. your nice post dear
