I have the biggest smile on my face right now!
I joined Best Buddies this year which is an organization that matches a college student with a “buddy” who has a disability. You hang out with your buddy, write them letters, go to BB parties, and just give them the opportunity to make a new friend. It’s a really great organization that promotes inclusion which, as a special education major, is one of my biggest passions.
I originally signed up as an associate buddy, which is a buddy who just goes to the events and hangs out with everybody. But one of the buddies, Wes, who doesn’t have an official buddy has become really attached to me. Next semester I’m going to switch to a college buddy and be his “official” buddy lol
Anyways, when I got to the Christmas party tonight, Wes was already waiting for me and sooo excited! He told me all about how he got the card I sent him in the mail over Thanksgiving and hung it in his apartment. It just made me feel so good that I could do that for him. At one point, I left the room and he asked my friend Angela to help him make me a Christmas card. It says: Dear Casey, You are a very special person and you have shown me a special friendship. You are a very nice lady. Merry Christmas, you are my best buddy! And don’t you forget it! Love, Wesley.
He’s just the sweetest and I am so happy for the opportunity to show him friendship and make him feel loved.
