Big Brothers Big Sisters- Any experience? - Page 2
When I was 5 years old I was the oldest of 4 kids, my mother was single raising us on state aid. I was partnered with my big sister, Katrina was her name. We hit if off right off the bat, she made me feel something I only felt around her. I know my mom wanted to do more for us she was just financially unable. Katrina and I did so many things together, we even went to adventureland! I have so many fond memories. We did not have to spend money to have fun, we would color, read books, go fishing and even bike riding. I am 36 years old today and throughout the years Katrina and I have stayed in contact, she means the world to me. I enjoyed our time together. I don't know if she really knew how excited I would be to go with her, as I got older I felt guilty that she was so kind to me and I had nothing to give in return. Little did I know, me smiling and laughing was all she needed. This program changed my life and I am so happy that I had such a wonderful experience. I can only hope everyone in the program could have someone as wonderful as my Katrina. I love her and I always will.
