The Buddy Walk means a lot to me. It is a very literal reminder that our friends & family members are by our sides, walking this unexpected journey with us. When Levi was a newborn, I was so afraid people would be uncomfortable around him and that we would lose our friends. I know it sounds silly now, but that is a big reason why the Buddy Walk is so significant to me. Thanks to all of you that contributed in one way or another to make our day special.
I hope as you look at the photos, you can also focus on the words of the song, Empathy, by Alanis Morissette.
"Thank you for seeing me.
I feel so less lonely.
Thank you for getting me.
I'm healed by your empathy."
