The person who would normally take me to see my niece in prison was sick and I had no way to visit her. I am the only female in our family who has kept contact, so our visits are very important. I was feeling really down about it until I was informed of the Securus Technologies Video Visitation. I did my research and watched all of the videos I could find on Youtube. If her facility had that program, I was going to find out about it. Thank God, they were hooked into the Securus Technologies Video Visitation. I was so happy I could scream. I did all the necessary paperwork and got connected through my home computer. Just like you have a certain time to visit in person, it is the same with Securus Technologies Video Visitation. I made sure I was ready and waiting. And there she was. The stream was live. I could see and hear my niece. I could see the background where she was sitting. And she could see me and my surroundings. Just when I thought there was no answer, Securus Technologies Video Visitation came through for me.
It is now the Christmas holiday season. I still don’t have a way to get out to the prison. I am going to apply for another visit with my niece from Securus Technologies Video Visitation. I am sure she will enjoy the visit. She was actually surprised that the prison would allow the inmates that type of freedom. This experience has made her calm down some and appreciate the kindness shown to her while there. She is becoming a role model because she is able to experience this form of outside communication because of Securus Technologies Video Visitation. I am so thankful this program is available to the inmates. It really helps on both sides of the fence. I personally am sold on this way of communicating with my niece, as I have no way to actually see her. Thank you Securus Technologies Video Visitation for helping me to stay connected.
