Juana loves arts and crafts, going to the park, swimming, and learning science; but her favorite class is PE. At 9 years old, this sweetheart loves puppies and playing with her brother and sisters, especially her twin sister. When she grows up, Juana wants to "help children or people."

Until then she is content playing, or reading books like "Harry Potter" or her favorite, "Cat in the Hat."

A lot happens in fourth and fifth grade, and Juana would love to have a grown up friend she can trust and talk with. Of course she would also want someone fun, who will want to try new things together. Mostly she just wants a Big who likes her for who she is, and will spend a few hours a month hanging out.

Being a Big Brother, Big Sister, Big Couple, or Big Family can be difficult; you have to be able to have fun. If "fun" is a big stretch for you, don't bother. But, if you are between the ages of 16 and 94, and can include a child in one or more activities you already do, give us a call.
