Little Sister Testimonials

A Little Sister’s Poem

A special sister and best friend.
Time with you, I love to spend.
Always been there, through think and thin.
I know your thoughts, through your grin.
A special sister and a best friend,
my gratitude, I wish to send.
Your kindness keeps me very warm,
great conversations are the norm.
A special sister and a best friend,
Your dreams and thoughts, I shall defend.
We are more than just a team,
I’m your coffee, you’re my crème.

Brandy

She helps me with a lot and I think I would seriously be lost without her. Brandy shows me self-confidence and she tells me that even on my worst day I have to keep trying.”

Little Sister Pride

“I had abandonment issues growing up. Having a Big Sister as a constant in my life made me realize that not everyone I loved was going to leave me. I feel like I did a lot of the things growing up that I wouldn’t have been able to do. She taught me to be proud of myself and who I am and where I came from.”
