Letters From Prison: Art and Short Stories

Sketch and letter from a Florida inmate

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

I had a brain aneurysm from stress, resulting in spastic paralysis, and have had 40% recovery.

I’ve self-educated myself. I do not do drugs or smoke. 

My interests are art, writing short stories, recipes, and I would like to learn about penny stocks. I’m caring, considerate and understanding. 

I would like to find someone in my life, like a mother-, father-, brother- or sister-figure, to cry with, laugh with, and support each other.

    Please send me his information at your earliest convenience.
    That’s a coincidence he would like to learn about penny stocks, I was looking into that yesterday to learn myself.

    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.
