Big Sister Lorenda and Little Sister Abigail were matched on March 12, 2020. Lorenda became a Big because, having been a Little herself when she was younger, she wanted to be a role model for someone the way her Big had been for her.
Although their in-person outing has been delayed due to COVID-19, Lorenda and Abigail have exchanged letters, texts, and even a care basket. They plan on getting to know each other better and hope to build and share a bond that will last forever!
This match was lit with the support of Betty Craig.
