The events of January 6th, 2021 have devasted our family of 5, as it did many other Americans! My husband was arrested in our home state on January 8th, 2021 and incarcerated here until he was ordered to DC. He had been incarcerated in DC since early February! We had went from a 2 income household, with him being the main provider, to only my income for the last 6 months! I have somehow maintained everything we have worked so hard for in our life together over the last 25 years!
My husband was finally released on July 14th, 2021 on bond awaiting "solution" to his case! He is on house arrest and is ordered not to work! Any help would be greatly appreciated during this hard time of our lives!
God bless you all!

Happy Sunday Morning!
In 6 days our middle child will walk across the stage and graduate high school!
In 2 weeks she will turn 18!
And in 3 weeks, we will be celebrating her accomplishment!
We are so incredibly proud of her! She did this as a teenager going through this horrible situation!
It makes me so sad, angry, frustrated, scared, etc that we are having to do all of this without my husband and my children without their father! Just another “first/only” life event being missed by him!
Please pray for us and say a little congratulation to the one who finished high school while living a real life nightmare😢🙏🏻
Update #17 May 8, 2022
Tomorrow is 16 months since our nightmare started! That’s 486 days! I’d be lying if I said it has gotten any easier! Today my dryer quit working! I’ll admit I had a little melt down and yelled at my husband out load for not being here to fix it! I tried to clean the vent, but it didn’t work! When my husband called tonight I couldn’t quit crying about it! He has a way even as he’s locked away in a Maximum Security Prison, pre-trail, to calm my nervous! He told me to call Maytag as it may be under warranty! So part my Mother’s Day will be spent with our kiddos at the laundromat, something I haven’t done in many, many years! Ugh!
Please continue to pray that this nightmare for us can be over sooner rather than later! I just really miss my husband and really want him back!
Update #16 March 28, 2022
Haven’t done an update in forever! Life has been super crazy and I need nothing more than my husband home to wrap his arms around me and tell me life is going to be ok!
Please pray for my momma! She had bypass surgery on 11/5/21 and has had complication after complication, too much for this update! After being in the hospital since surgery, minus 2 small releases to home, she was finally released to my sisters on 3/17/22 with a wound vac still in place on her chest! She was transported back to the hospital via ambulance on 3/24/22! They’ve found she has staph infection in her chest wound and her blood! Please pray the medications start working and help save her!
Doug’s trial date has finally been set for September 19-23 in DC, unless the motion to have it moved to our home state is approved!
We have almost 6 months until then and he is still incarcerated in a Federal Prison! Just doesn’t seem fair or legal, but what do I know?
Our baby just turned 16 last week, our middle baby is graduating in May and 18 in June! Doing this life without my FOREVER love is getting hard, but I will continue to stay strong for my husband, our children and myself! I will continue to rise everyday and kick life’s ass!
Thank you all for the prayers, positives messages and donations! They are very appreciated and are not ignored!
Update #15 January 26, 2022
Just talked to my husband! Longest 24 days of my life! That has been the longest I’ve had to go without talking to him since this whole thing started and he was arrested on January 8th 2021! Prior record was 16 days without talking to him!
Please continue to pray for our family and my husband!
Update #14 January 6, 2022
It’s been 4 days since I’ve heard from my husband! These are the days I want to scream, cry, cuss, break something, just want to straight throw an “it’s not fair” fit!
The prison says it’s because they are on lockdown due to COVID? Fine, I get that, whatever, but how can they not have to let them at least call their families? Don’t they realize what it does to a person? Him, being locked up 24 hours a day by himself, knowing that I’m here worried sick! Or me here not knowing if he really is ok and just on lockdown? Or is something wrong? They’d have to tell me right?
I’ve been with my husband for 2 1/2 decades…25 years! That’s a lot of days of waking up next to him and saying good morning and a lot of nights, laying next to him and saying good night!
This last year has definitely been challenging and we’ve conquered things that I never in a million years would have thought would be my actual life now.
A lot of days and life events have been missed by my husband and for us having to continue on, missing him on so may firsts in the last 365 days!
I have to continue to believe in miracles and continue to pray that my husband will get to come home soon, or at least that phone call home!
Update #13 January 1, 2022
Today marks 51 weeks since my husband was taken from our family! 1 week away from a whole year!
I just celebrated my first Christmas in 25 years without my husband and our children just celebrated there first ever without their dad. Doug spent his Christmas and now New Years Eve all alone in Solitary confinement/quarantine due to COVID, as he was transferred to a different Federal Penitentiary 2 1/2 weeks ago from the DC prison! Now we are about to start a whole new year without him! This has been such a rough and overwhelming year!
Please continue to pray for all of us and for the strength to continue to fight this ugly battle!
God Bless and Happy New Year!
Update #12 December 19, 2021
We are 11 months and 10 days into this nightmare! We are one week away from Christmas! And 2 weeks until the new year!
As of Tuesday, December 14th my husband was transferred from the DC prison! No idea why he was moved, but have an idea of where he went! I have not talked to him since the 13th! I believe it will be 2-3 weeks until I hear from him, due to him having to go through the quarantine process!
Please pray for us all!
Update #11 December 8, 2021
Today marks 11 months since this nightmare started and Doug was arrested! I'm still in awe daily that this has become my/our life! I can only hope and pray that someday soon, we can begin to move on from this!
We truly appreciate all the love, prayers, emails, letters and donations from everyone!
Update #10 November 10, 2021
Thank you to those who have prayed, messaged and donated for our family!
It’s been 10 months 2 days, almost 44 weeks, 306 days, 7,360 hour (just because sometimes that’s how slow I’m taking it all in, since our nightmare started when Doug was arrested!
6 months 6 days, 26 weeks 5 days, 182 days 4,368 hours and he was miraculously released!
1 month 19 days, 7 weeks 1 day, 50 days, 1200 hours, I was blessed to have him home!
Now he’s been gone again 2 months 8 days, 9 weeks 6 days. 65 days and 1656 hours and I can’t seem to see the light at the end of this dark tunnel!
We continue to pray and have faith that this will all be over soon!
Update #9 October 9, 2021
Doug finally made it to DC on Monday the 4th! He will be in general population until the 18th or so! Please pray that he stays safe! It has been 9 months today since this nightmare started for us when he was taken into custody. 9 MONTHS, 40 WEEKS, 280 DAYS! This feels like a horrible nightmare I can't wake up from! Please pray that this can all be over soon and justice will prevail, so my husband and so many others, can be reunited with their families! Thank you and God Bless!
Update #8 September 17, 2021
As of yesterday, my husband is now on his journey back to DC! Last time, this took 16 days! 16 days of not knowing where he was or if he was ok! Please pray for him/us! This is all so hard and unfair! Thank you all for your support and prayers! This fight is far from over! Thank you and God Bless!

2 weeks since Doug's release. Happy to have my husband home! He was granted permission to go out in the yard at court yesterday! It's a very small step but he enjoyed every minute of it today even in the 100 degree weather! Sunshine and fresh air! Something he was denied for 6 months and 6 days!
