I first became involved with Sibling Connections in 2006 by circumstances of good timing and knowing the right people. Judy Cockerton, responsible for bringing Camp To Belong (CTB) to Massachusetts, asked me to volunteer for the week - I was between jobs and decided to spend the week as a counselor, supporting and mentoring siblings who have been separated when placed in foster care. It was a truly life-changing experience for me and I have been involved in the organization ever since - as a volunteer counselor at Camp To Belong and the Sibling Saturday/Sunday program, as a board member for the organization, and for the last couple of years as a member of the health center staff at camp. There are really no words to describe how how much I love this program and all that it does for the kids in care in Massachusetts. My six years of service is certainly an indication of my dedication to the mission and vision of the organization. All children deserve the opportunity to create wonderful, lasting childhood memories with their siblings, and it my privilege to be a part of something so special. I cannot wait for my 7th season at CTB this August!
