Big Brothers Big Sisters Columbia Northwest
April 14, 2011

My "Little Sister" is in 5th grade, and we have so much fun together. I am a busy professional with two boys at home, but look forward to seeing her. We do fun things like crafts, attend events, go to movies, cook, make jewelry, take pictures and attend events sponsored by Big Brothers Big Sisters Columbia Northwest. She has not had an easy year though; her grandmother died two months ago, and one of her siblings has a serious drug problem. The family as a whole has benefitted from the referrals to social service agencies in the area to help them with grief counseling, free legal advise, and AlAnon. My Little Sister amazes me, she always tries to see the best in people. We laugh and hang out together and sometimes the best thing I can do is listen and be there for her. Thanks for the opportunity!
