Carmen & Shelbie

As told by

Carmen:

"Becoming a Big Sister has been extremely rewarding. I have seen my Little grow over the past two years and in turn I have grown as well. Shelbie is a positive light in my life! She reminds me to see things from a child’s perspective. To see the world with a sense of wonder. She encourages me to do things that I am afraid of such as touching a snake or jumping at the trampoline park. She encourages me to be creative, to step out of my comfort zone and embrace my inner child. I know our relationship will continue for a long time, and that she will remain to be a big part of my life. I firmly believe that I have made an positive impact in her life. I have become someone whom she trusts, a mentor and a positive role model. This is my most cherished achievement."
