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 Alicia and Sara!

Alicia is located in Georgia and her e-Buddy, Sara, is from Ohio. They were matched in 2005 and have sent one another nearly 100 e-mails each. In that time they have forged a great friendship that has affected both of their lives in a positive way.

Alicia shares that she really enjoys that she and Sara e-mail back and forth on a regular basis. Sara explains, "Our friendship is special because we have opened up a lot to each other over the years whether it be when I was in China recently sharing my journey overseas with Alicia, relationship issues, family, or wedding plans."

When asked what is surprising about their involvement in e-Buddies, Sara shares that even though it is sometimes difficult to e-mail each other, her and Alicia have always been able to maintain a close friendship. Alicia explains that although they are not able to meet in person, she believes that Sara is a very nice person.

Sara goes on to say that; "I love being in e-Buddies because it gives us both an opportunity to grow as individuals, grow together as friends, and open our hearts to someone who cares about our lives."

Sara and Alicia appreciate the friendship that they have been able to develop through e-Buddies. Sara sums it up by sharing: "Alicia is a wonderful friend and has a great personality. I love when I get an e-mail from her, always brightens my day if it's been a rough day. I know that in the upcoming years we will continue to be friends and we will learn even more about each other as life takes us through more highs and lows."

Congratulations to Sara and Alicia our e-Buddies of the Month for February!
