My e-mail Buddy

I would like to share with you a very special friend. Two years ago I was a very lonely person, and I needed somebody that I could talk to. One day something happened to me that changed my life. One snowy day, I was in my bedroom using my computer. I was looking through the Internet, and all of a sudden, something caught my eye. I saw a web page called e-Buddies, and I said to myself that I needed a friend that I could write to. So I filled out the application form, and I joined e-Buddies pen pal club. A few weeks passed by, and I was looking through my e-mails, and I saw a letter in my in-box. I opened it, and there was a letter from my new e-Buddy.

Me and Lisa

Lisa and I have been friends for a very long time, and we e-mail each other everyday. Lisa is a very good friend and she is a wonderful person, and she would make you smile. And when you cry, she is always there to wipe your tears. I am truly blessed to have a friend like Lisa. E-Buddies is a friendship program created by Best Buddies International. E-Buddies creates e-mail friendships for people with developmental disabilities. With a few clicks of the mouse, e-Buddies could change your life, and you could have a new friend to write to.
