Big Sister Adrienne cannot say enough good things about her relationship with Little Sister Pearl. This pair actually started out as a school-based match through Big Brothers Big Sisters and their relationship has continued to thrive over the years. Even Adrienne’s husband and parents are involved with the match at this point and treat Pearl as a member of their family–all of them are very excited to celebrate Pearl’s graduation.
Big Sister Adrienne recently wrote an open letter to Pearl for her graduation. One part of it reads, “Over the past couple of years especially, Pearl and I have become a part of each other’s families. We have spent holidays together; including Easter, Thanksgiving, and our birthdays that are just two days apart. Pearl’s sisters oftentimes accompany her to my family gatherings so we get to know the Three Muskateers in a whole new way. My entire extended family has come to know and love Pearl and her sisters and are always so happy when they join us. Over the years, we haven’t always shared in joys together; but sorrows too, in both of our lives. We literally watched each other grow up. And it has been a beautiful friendship that I will treasure forever. Pearl Girl – I am so so proud of the woman you are becoming and I am excited for our friendship to continue for many years to come. You might have thought that you would get rid of me at your Graduation Ceremony, but the truth is, we’ve only just begun. ”
