e-Buddies of the Month
Each month, we will profile one of our many fantastic e-Buddies pairs! If you would like for your match to be profiled, please contact us!
This month we are featuring Adam and Priscilla!
Adam is from Maryland and his e-Buddy, Priscilla, is from Florida. They have been matched since July of 2005.
When asked what she enjoys most about being e-Buddies with Adam, Priscilla says, “I really enjoy hearing about Adam's life and his involvement with Special Olympics. He is an amazing athlete and has won so many medals. I think he is an incredible person, and his e-mails always inspire me.”
Adam has also enjoyed his e-Buddies experience: “Priscilla has been one of the nicest people I could talk with. She encouraged me to go for everything that I can as I go through life. Cilla makes me laugh and I go onto the computer every week now with anticipation of receiving an e-mail from her to see what she has been up to. I am so happy that she and I are friends and I will always have a smile on my face because of her.”
According to Priscilla, “What has surprised me most is how I feel like Adam and I have been friends for forever, even though we've only been e-mailing for a little less than 2 years. We really are true friends, encouraging each other through life's challenges and celebrating each other's victories.” For Adam, the most surprising e-mail he got from Priscilla was “when she told me she was getting married, I was really excited and she has been sharing with me how she has to go through many steps for planning her own wedding the way she wants. But for everything she does, I think Cilla and her Fiancé, Stephen deserve everything!”
Even after two years, it sounds like this friendship will be going strong for quite a while. Congratulations to Priscilla and Adam, our e-Buddies of the month for June!
