Stories told by Sheila and Joe with Perspective by Dr. Sue Johnson.
Love from the inside out.
“It was about a year into our corresponding with each other, and I remember saying to myself life isn’t promised to anyone, I should meet Joe.”
After a year of letter corresponding, Sheila and Joe decided to meet in person for the first time. She took the bus to the prison and waited for Joe in the visiting room. That first meeting lasted five hours. Two years later they were married. It would be twelve more years before Joe was released from prison and they could begin their life together on the outside.
