Default My history with MWI

Hello everyone my name is Alatriste and I'm a spanish guy (from Spain, Europe) living in Italy. One day, while browsing the web, I saw an ad about writing to a prisioner in the U.S., I was so curious so I visited that website. And after that my life has changed.

In this site, I found the profile of (for privacy I'll ommit her name) V. the most beautiful girl I've never saw. She was like a princess. I don't care she has do some bad choices and we start to write each other and quickly we develop something more than a friendship. Is like we are meant for each other. I can hardly speak english but the love only speaks the feelings language.

I want to share my history because I feel sometimes sad and lonely. I can't stop thinking about her...

I'm planning a trip to the US and go to her correctional center but I don't know if a foreigner can visit someone imprisioned...

Welcome to PTO!

Lots of MWI couples here (who share your feelings!) and plenty of those are international. Hopefully you'll find the support and answers you seek on our boards.

Hi and welcome to PTO. Is your girl in a state or federal prison? Federal prison has a rule of having known each other before incarceration, but it can be appealed.

We are many foreigners on here in relationships with inmates in the US. I am also from Europe and met my husband through an inmate penpal website as well. Love knows no boundaries. 😊

She's in a state prison and I'm pretty sure he'd be approved for visits.

Yes you can visit. You have to be approved by the prison first. I hope everything works out.

AW! Congrats on meeting someone special! Welcome to PTO!!! I hope you find what you are looking for. There are many individuals on here from out of country, they may be able to assist a little more with those questions.

Thank you all, you are very kind.

My love one is in a state prision. I'm at something of a loss as to how to ask an approvation for my visitation. Can I do it online? I've to go phisically to the correctional center for fill the form?

You have to ask your friend to send you a visiting form fill it in and return it.

It depends of the state. For example in Tx all you have to do is that your loved one (inmate) gives your information to prison and then they will add you on visit list, if you're approved. If you're approved, they notify the inmate.
