“I’m going to miss so many firsts, ” said Kendra Goodrick as she held her 9-week-old son Jameson at her home in Hayden Monday.

Goodrick, 29, said she never thought she’d be headed back to prison after 1st District Judge John Mitchell placed her on probation in January 2006. The Court of Appeals decision was a devastating blow, she said. Goodrick is a model of success, according to the attorneys and counselors who have worked with her. She married her longtime boyfriend on March 31 and gave birth to her first child April 10. “I’ve come so far, and I’ve done everything they’ve requested me to do,” she said. “And then some.”
