"I became a BIG for a couple of reasons", says Carla, "I was fortunate enough to grow up in a great family and wanted to be able to share some of that with someone. My nieces and nephews had just moved a couple hours away and I don't have any of my own children. I researched Big Brothers Big Sisters and the rest is history. I am PROUD of Alyssa for overcoming many obstacles but MOST proud of her attending WDTC for Phlebotomy/Laboratory Assistant."
Little Sister Alyssa says, "I love being a Little Sister. Carla and I have bonded so well and now for being together so long she’s like family to me and I can go to her for almost anything, because I don’t have siblings of my own I can have someone to talk to. I couldn’t ask for a better Big Sister!"
