Yanique

For the past 34 years of my life I've always been the "little sister" but as of Saturday, the rolls have changed and now I am happy to say that I am a "Big Sister" of a wonderful 10 year old girl, Yanique.


On Saturday we had our first "outing" as sisters.

Of course she is not "my blood" sister, but for a year, thanks to the mentor program of "Big Brothers & Big Sisters of the Cayman Islands", we get to spend a few hours together every week, and build up a relationship that we both, but specially her can benefit from.

So, on Sat. we visited The Pirates Caves, where they have [of course] caves as well as a small petting zoo.

It was a great place to start getting to know each other and to be around animals, which we both love.


Yanique is a very nice, intelligent and friendly girl, she is also very well mannered and fun. Her love for animals showed me that she is also a very caring and sensitive person.

I am very blessed and honored to be her "Big Sister" at least for a year, I know we both can learn a lot about each other and hopefully this relationship will bring lots of joy to our already blessed life.

Will share more pictures of the petting zoo tomorrow!

Hope everybody had a nice weekend, just as I did.

Now, enjoy the week!!!

She looks lovely, and it sounds like you had a perfect first "outing" :-) It´s a great initiative you have taken, to share some of your time and life with someone, who needs that kind of warming attention, that you offer. And I am sure you will both benefit from it.
I had a lovely weekend, beginning to write the first christmascard and decorating the house with even more christmas decos. It´s very stormy and cold here at the moment, but I managed to get 15 minutes sunshine on a quick walk! Have a lovely week! :-))

She looks like such a sweet girl! I think it's so wonderful that you're taking the time to open your heart to a special child like her. You're both very lucky. :)

What a great way to share your time and one that she will NEVER forget. Thank you so much for sharing that we can all make a difference if we are willing to take a first step!
