CORRLINKS IN OREGON

Hello,

I wrote to my PP who stays in Oregon (Umatilla, to be precise) throug the WAP system and yesterday I received a notification from Corrlinks that he wanted to add me on his list of contacts. I accepted and put the identification code I was given...a day has gone by but he still has to write to me. What should I do? Should I write him or should I wait for him? Or is it normal that he still has to write to me? I don't know if in the facility he's in they give internet access every day so I wanted to know some of your experiences...and any advice is happily accepted! Thank you :)

No harm in sending him a message! they get access to a tablet everyday so he should see your message...

I used to have a pen pal in the same facility and the same thing happened to me. I did message him and it turned out that he actually had sent me a physical letter  as an answer. I live abroad and it took a lot of time to reach me, hence why it looked like silence on his end. So drop your pen pal  a message, your situation might be similar. Good luck.

Both snail mail and email sent to and from a prison has to be read and approved by prison staff. It’s not like regular email so it may arrive one or two days after being sent.

Thank you so much! I actually received his message today, I guess I was a little impatient
