Diane's Story

A Big Sister Story

BBBS....what a wonderful organization!!

Our initial meeting was June 1996, now 17 years later I continue to be amazed by this beautiful young lady. This relationship has been a real gift - Brittany is FAMILY!

I have had the pleasure of watching a young girl chasing barn cats (and wanting to adopt them all) grow into an amazing young lady that I am truly so proud of. As a 9 year old our activities included swimming, movies, a visit to the farm, and going out for a meal.

A move to NB didn't keep us apart; a shuttle ride over and I would meet Brittany in Borden so she could spend a weekend on the Island. I (and my entire family) have been blessed by this friendship. As in any relationship the truly meaningful and lasting ones are where both parties are committed to maintaining the bond. By watching, listening and staying present in Brittany's life I have witnessed lessons of courage, caring, compassion and joy.

Brittany is currently pursuing Honours in Psychology with a minor in Classics (undergrad), and after completion will continue with PhD. studies with a long term goal to work as a Clinical Psychologist.

Thank you to Big Brothers Big Sisters. I am so happy to have made the decision to check into what this organization is all about. I would definitely recommend getting involved.
