I Am Doing This For Me As Much As For HerFirst, I must acknowledge the person who encouraged me to reach out. PRP, a core family member in my circle here, and I had a long discussion about initiating contact with inmates. Many hours and research went into this. While he forged ahead, and gave me updates as to the progress of it all, I procrastinated. I was distracted with the daily grind of life family and the occasional EP drama.
I am so very delighted to say that as of today, I am a pen pal to a woman in Idaho. Her circumstances and lessons faced are so similar to my sister, that I felt compelled to reach out.
I will wait with anticipation to get a reply from her, much like that of a child on the night before Christmas. I am hopeful that in beginning this friendship with her, it will lead to others.
Thank you so very much, my dear brother, for helping me realize that people are people, no matter where you may find them.
