Meet Ty'Tiana

I recently got matched up with my "Little" through the organization Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the East Bay. I was on the waiting list for over two and a half years due to budget problems. I am so happy to finally have a "Little." She is great too.

I took her to a Family Fun Night at a park in Antioch. We had a blast doing crafts, walking near the water, and running through the huge sprinklers up on a hill (that was my idea). After 6 months, we can start doing activities with friends and family members so we will be "touring" Sacramento sometime soon. She wants me to take her to Hawaii and Africa so if anyone has any spare frequent flyer miles...hand 'em over.

Shannon,
That's great you're doing this. You'll probably get more from it than your Little! But I hear they really enjoy having someone care and show interest in their lives. You can really make a difference. OOooeee...the snakes. She's a trooper to go to the snake area. ENjoy and have fun with her. You're the perfect, empathetic person for this volunteer position.
