e-Buddies of the Moment: Blossoming Buds

Each e-Beat edition, we profile one of our many fantastic e-Buddies pairs! If you would like for your match to be profiled, please contact us!

This e-Beat we are featuring Stephanie and Harmony!

Stephanie and Harmony have only been matched through e-Buddies for four months, but the pair has really hit it off. They talk about movies and places to shop, but the main topic of conversation is what is going on in their everyday lives. Both claim to be cheered up every time they receive an e-mail from their new friend. Harmony was first just excited to have a "conversation with another person other than handling [her] everyday affairs," but is now happy to have a new friend that she can talk to about everything. Through e-mail Stephanie is able to look beyond their differences and just get to know Harmony as a person. "When the topic of e-Buddies comes up people often ask me what disability my e-Buddy has, I don't remember and even if I could it wouldn't be the primary way I describe her."

The two are looking forward to the development of their friendship and are happy to have come together through e-Buddies. Stephanie claims that "e-Buddies is such a simple way to make friends with someone [you] wouldn't normally be getting to know." Harmony is glad e-Buddies is available to so many people around the world. "This is a wonderful service connecting with other people in the world that wants to be friends with people with special needs."

We are excited to see where Stephanie and Harmony's friendship goes. For now, we're happy to have them connecting through e-mail and becoming good friends.
