Sketch and letter from a Florida inmate

I was wrongfully incarcerated and am waiting for the documentation that proves my innocence.

    Well Erika, it’s my pleasure to use some of my free time to make this gentleman feel like he has a support group and a reason to continue to walk a straight line while behind the fence. I hope to continue to give my time and positive thoughts and ideas to Adopt An Inmate. I’ve been looking for a project that could make a difference in someone’s life.
