Diamondj.... Don't worry your LO is safe and nothing bad is going to happen to him.Take a Deep Breath and Remember IDOC is responsible for our LO's! All their pictures going into BC are hard to look at, They are usually deprived of sleep ( nervous about going).
You will get a call after he is 30 days in. He is now what they call in his Ghost period (this is where they let them know who is the boss).You will get a half page letter telling you that he has made it and how sorry he is for everything. You will be able to visit after 60 days. These are scheduled visits and he has to do it, he will let you know the dates (it's either on Sat. or Sun.).
If you haven't done so yet please check out the Ten Steps to entering IDOC. It will give you valuable information.http://www.illinoisprisontalk.org/index.php?topic=1513.0
