Hi again Adoption, 1964, this is from Dianne in Nevada.

You just need to go into your settings and make the change.

Scroll down to the Pen Pal question
Change the response from No to Yes
Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and click the SAVE button. Must do this or it won't make the change.
