Hi there. My name is Michael Welch. i am placing this ad in hopes of finding someone out there who believes in giving someone a second chance, someone who believes a person is capable of changing. i’ve been incarcerated for 20 years, since i was 19 years old. i am down to my last few years and wanted to reach out to see if there is anyone out there who is willing to offer me a second chance, someone who would like to get to know me. I think you might be surprised. I’ve worked very hard on becoming the best me that I can be. I’ve not sit idle these past 20 years. I’ve taken advantage of every opportunity afforded me by the DOC to improve my attitude, outlook, and education. i’m honest, open, compassionate, loyal, dedicated, and ready for a new start. It’s been a long, lonely road and I could use a friend. I would really appreciate hearing from you. Once you get to know me, you won’t be disappointed that you responded. I have so much to say, but I’m limited on here so please take a moment to respond and I will tell you all about myself. I am anxious to get to know you, to have an opportunity to put a smile on your face, to make a positive difference in your life. You can send a Jpay email or snail mail. Hope to hear from you soon. Have a wonderful day.
