Default How long does it take for inmate to get mail and how long does i take to get a reply?

I sent a letter the week of Christmas when I found out he had made it to his permanent location...and I still haven't heard back. I'm really sad about it too....
It has only been two weeks and I'm just curious if I should just keep writing???

definately keep writing.. My love got locked up nov 13. I didnt hear from him until dec 9! In the letter I finally got.. he went a good week writing on a single sheet of paper.. two written lines per college ruled line, becuase he had yet to recieve more than one sheet of paper!
Have patience. I know that it is hard.. Trust me. But I think that we keep them sane with our letters, and essentially connected to the outside world. That, and he'll know that you're thinking of him

Good luck, and happy mailman stalking!

Just keep writing. He needs all the letters he can get. It might take a little bit for the letters to start flowing but once they do you should hear from him on a regular basis.

I understand how you feel. I haven't gotten any calls from my bf in 6 days and I feel restless, so I imagine how you feel not hearing from your significant other for weeks now. But def. keep writing to him, hopefully he'll write back soon <3
