About

I am the wife of a sex offender. This is no suprise to my readers. I love my husband, very much. I have forgiven him for the past which he has paid for. I have forgiven him for any hardship  his past may have on our family. I am a loving wife, but I would like you to know that I am so much more than that.

I am a devoted daughter of our loving, forgiving Father in Heaven.

I am a caring, adoring mother of two daughters and an incredible stepson. My children are 11, 8, and 3 years old. A majority of my life revolves around them, teaching them, protecting them, nourishing them, and nurturing them in every way I can to ensure positive growth physically, mentally, and emotionally.

I am a photographer, modern-day abolitionist, a social networker, a ball player, a sports fan, a cook, a maid, and a taxi driver to name a few more talents I have.

But, despite all of this, at the end of the day, my husband is still on the sex offender registry in Maine. At the end of the day, I need to take extra percaution to make sure that all of the windows and doors are locked, that our family is safe. I have to be there for my husband, because I know that all of the anguish and worries I have, he endures them 100 times more then me.

  1. Hi There,
    I was very happy to have found your blog via @SOIsue. I’m always heartened by people like yourself who use their mind and heart to know someone.

    I write this blog: http://masexoffenderresource.blogspot.com/
    Would you be okay if I linked to your blog?

    • Yes, Richard, I wouldn’t mind a link 🙂 Has Mass moved to a tiered system? 2009 Law required all states to do it, and Maine has yet to comply…in fact only 9 states have complied!

  2. Great!
    Mass currently has a tiered system classifying those required to register as sex offenders and has used this method since I was classified back in 2001. Are you referring to the Adam Walsh Act or SORNA? I know a lot of states aren’t signing up due to the cost of implementing the federal law. I believe MA has one of the better state systems, better being relative.

    • The Adam Walsh act is exactly what I was referring to. I read somewhere that although it became law in 2007 that states had until 2009 to comply, and to date, in 2011, only 9 states have. My husband and I used to joke around about moving to Mass because the system was compliant and much better then here in Maine! We just recently gained the courage to become more public and outspoken about the treatment of registered offenders, making people aware of the facts, and also encouraging people to understand that EVERYONE has a story, and ANYONE can change. It’s not an easy task to take on, and we have lost many friends, but if we can make a difference in one person’s life, then we will know it has been worth it.

      • When it comes to understanding how SO registry laws affect sex offenders and their family, the public rarely hear about the plight of the spouses/significant others and children who are essentially caught up in the registry also. There are many people and organizations out there who are on the same page and are working to get the family’s voice out there as we..
