Hello, everyone! Last Sunday was meet your buddy event where my buddy partner, Libby and I, met our buddy Yasmin for the first time. She was a little shy at first, so we ate snow cones in the park while we talked about our favorite things to do. We learned we all had a lot in common. When Yasmin got a little more comfortable with us, we started playing games in the park. We played princesses on the play set, cornhole, and we splashed in the water park. Yasmin kept telling her mom “Look at my buddies, mom. They are my friends.” Every time she said this, it made me feel special, like I was making a difference in her life. It was really such an amazing experience. I’m so glad I get to share my PFO buddy experience with Libby and Yasmin. Thanks for reading! Louisa Stein
