Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Texas
April 5, 2011

I've been a Big Sister with BBBS of South Texas for over 2 years. My Little is 16 years old, and I've watched her grow in confidence and get much more plugged into her school and community over the years that we've been building our friendship. My Little and I are pretty different, but we have a great time together, no matter the activity. I sat at the family table at her Quinceanera, and her whole family came to my wedding. I know that we'll be friends for the long term! I'm proud of the woman that she's becoming, and I'm grateful to be a part of her life. Thanks very much to BBBS for all the support that we've gotten over the years!
