My buddy’s name is Emma. We met through the Best Buddies Citizens program. We have been Buddies for several years. One of our first outings was to see the Christmas Lights at the Brookfield Zoo. We went with the Best Buddies Citizens group and we had a great time. It was a good start to our friendship.
