Things aren’t panning out too well at present. I’ve supported my husband in the year since his release. We’ve gone through horrible ups and downs, fought depression, debt collectors and all the stigma of either being an ex-offender or living with an ex-offender. But now, so close to the business actually taking off, a curved ball has been thrown that is shedding doubt on the whole operation.
The ethos of the business is to introduce a new life for those guys who want to turn their backs on crime and to become law-abiding, tax-paying, family supporting citizens, WITH criminal records, but not defined by them. It still can be done. It must be done.
We’ve all come this far and it would be desperate at the point of breakthrough to give in.
