best buddy

I was recently matched up with a girl from my school with down syndrome for best buddies(which is a great organization).In best buddies you are either matched up and are a peer buddy or are you are a associate buddy.I choose to be a peer buddy and I was matched up with the sweetest girl she is already making an impact in my life. My question is what can I do so I make an impact in her life, we talk about girl things (boys,shopping,ect) we watch movies together and go out for ice cream. I feel there is more I can do I just can not figure out what
any suggestions?
Thanks

Re: best buddy

greetings,

I believe if she has such an impact on your life, you have done the same. Simply be an honest friend. She'll see through you if you are faking it. I grew up with a down syndrome friend and we played Barbie and House and ran up and down steps. Simply be the gift you are to her, and she seems to be to you.

Re: best buddy

I agree with Liz... just your friendship...your time...is invaluable!!

...my son has DS...but I had no "choice" in the matter... I think it's very admirable that you have CHOSEN to join such an organization, and commit your time to disabled kids!
