BIGnews from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Fairfield County, Ohio
November 2015 Doni was 6 years old when her parents divorced. Over the next ten years Mom was in and out of her life and Dad was deployed three times. She was raised by grandparents, aunts and step dads - five homes in ten years. Today, this poised and determined young woman has the courage and compassion to be a Big Sister for another child just like her, who is growing up without a parent.
Devon is a 10 year old boy being raised by a single mom. He doesn’t smile and can’t seem to find happiness in his day to day routine which has led to some problems at school. No one is quite sure if a 16 year old Big Sister is a good idea, except for Doni….she KNOWS she can do it!
