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 Amanda and Meloni!

Amanda is from the state of Virginia and Meloni is from Illinois. These ladies have been happily e-mailing each other since March and have formed a fast friendship.

When asked what the pair likes most about being involved in e-Buddies Amanda states it is because she gets the opportunity to know someone with different life experiences than her own that she wouldn't have met otherwise. She goes on to say e-Buddies has opened her eyes to what individuals with disabilities can contribute and achieve.

Meloni states she most likes that in e-Buddies she has found a new friend. Meloni also tells me that the two have a lot in common and that makes her friendship with Amanda special.

Amanda says her friendship with Meloni is so special because Meloni is so very special. She states that Meloni is an amazing person who has so many things going on that it's hard for her to imagine where Meloni finds the time to e-mail. Amanda tells me that Meloni is currently employed, engaged to be married, competes in multiple sporting events through Special Olympics, is a proud aunt, and remains actively involved in the lives of her many friends. With all these activities Meloni still finds the time to devote to her online friendship with Amanda.

After a few matches that didn't work out Amanda is happy to have found a friend in Meloni. Amanda says that she loves hearing what Meloni is up to and that she is one of the most interesting and inspiring people she has ever met. Meloni gushes that Amanda is the best friend she could ever e-mail.

Simply but profoundly stated Meloni tells me that e-Buddies is a great group. Well, Meloni, I couldn't agree more!

Happy continued e-mailing, ladies.
