Default Into--Shelby67 from Australia

Hi there,
Just a quick introduction (long time stalker, first time poster)i am Michelle from Melbourne Australia. I became interested in writing to an inmate a couple of years ago. My brother did 6 months and would tell me stories of the guys who didn't have family contact, for various reasons, money, disowning, feuds etc.. anyway it kind of breaks my heart. So i thought about it seriously, as i think once you start communication with someone you cant be fair weathered about it, and i wrote a letter to an inmate in Arizona. He has written back, so far so good.

Anyway, i just wanted to introduce myself and explain a bit where I am coming from and i hope to be a productive member of the community.

Thank you for your time,
Michelle

Welcome to Prison Talk Michelle. I was surprised that so many prisoners are abandoned as soon as they are sentenced. I'm glad that your Pen Pal connection is working out.

Here is a link to our Pen Pal forums.

Hi Shelby - welcome. I've been to Melbourne a few times, including one extended stay with my family. Great city. Hope you find the site useful, as so many do.

Thank you both for your kind words.

Its quite funny with the communication with my penpal. He is a real politics junkie and i was not. It has made me actually pay more attention to what is actually being said and question everything a bit more. But its all good. He is funny and our communication, as slow as it is, is quite lively.
