BB/BS match - Caroline & Wavy

March 9, 2007
Reported by Pam Dixon

Caroline Scott now has a good reason to kick off her shoes and cut loose. Caroline signed up for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program and was matched with seven year old Wavy in October 2006. Wavy says, "She helps me do everything." Caroline says, "I thought it would be cool to have a little girl look up to you and be a role model and be able to help them do stuff they don't get to do."

This friendship comes with a lot of ups. The two clicked from the beginning. Caroline says, "She's a girly girl and I'm a girly girl so we fit great." Wavy says, "She has a great smile."

And the smiles are endless. Caroline quickly discovered kids are a good excuse to horse around. Caroline says, "It reminds me of my childhood and I get to be a kid again. We do things I used to do as a child." Wavy says, "She helps me a lot lot."

All it takes is a couple of hours twice a month and you too can lead a youngster on the right path. If you would like to learn more about becoming a big brother or big sister, call 478-KIDS or click here.
