As Program Coordinator, I have the completely unique, marvelous job of building inspirational friendships from the ground up. Needless to say, I LOVE what I do! My job is filled with magical moments!
I’d like to share one of these moments with you.
In the very first Friendship that I started (between Kevin and David), I had jitters! It was my turn to step up to the plate, and I really was aiming for the fences (pun intended)! Looking back, I don’t think I aimed far enough!
During their first meeting, at the Induction Ceremony, David signed a baseball for Kevin, as he has done many times since beginning his career in baseball. Inspired by Kevin’s own story, I asked Kevin to sign a ball for David. The smile on his face was simply magical. David even said he planned on putting the ball in a box for his mantle. WOW!!!
