According to Lenora
After almost 19 years of incarceration I feel I have paid my debt and I am a changed person. During the time in federal prison I have taken many programs to help aid me in my addiction and prepared me for Re-Entry back into the community to be a helpful member of society. If given the privilege to return to my loved ones after serving so much time for crimes that took me away from them I would be forever grateful.
I live each day with the regret of cheating my children out of 19 years of my life by not being there for them when they needed me. Also my chronically ill mother suffering from dementia I hope to be able to use my health care I’ve learned while being in prison to take care of her. It is my dream to volunteer in the community with hospice care to bring hope to families hope. I would also like to bring a message to those suffering from addiction and the costs it brings to families. I want to be a positive role model to help others with addiction, and will strive each day to be a lawful and positive citizen of my community. I want to promote positive influence to members of the community and my family.
I am no longer the person I was 19 years ago, therefore I ask for the opportunity to get out and be with my children, mother, and many other loved ones that support me.
