My foster daughter's social worker told us about this program. Up until Sibling Sundays, my daughter wasn't able to see her brother regularly. His family had a hard time getting him to the supervised visits. Sibling Connections made arrangements for transportation for them to and from fun activities. They had a great time, being together and doing something fun rather than in an office one a month. I valued the work Sibling Connections was doing and decided to become involved as a volunteer. I assisted with planning activities, providing transportation and being a mentor. I even got my husband involved and he helped with preparing lunches for the events. It is a wonderful feeling to know something you are doing is having such an amazing impact on siblings' lives. I am mostly thrilled to be a part of the solution of siblings having their monthly one hour visits in a state office. Now they can do activities together and really enjoy their time together!
