April Match of the Month
Nine years ago, Big Brother Ronny was introduced to his Little Brother Jaidan. Many milestones and memories later, the pair looks forward to staying friends for life.

Jaidan and Ronny met when Jaidan was in third grade and immediately bonded. Ronny has been involved in every aspect of Jaidan’s life from his health, to his faith and everything in between. Jaidan and Ronny also set educational goals so Jaidan is better prepared for his future endeavors. When Jaidan and his mother moved, Ronny made his commitment to Jaidan clear.

“No matter how far I may have moved from Ronny, he has never made an excuse or asked to meet me in the middle to spend time with Jaidan,” said Jaidan’s mom.

When Ronny got married, he didn’t just ask Jaidan to be a guest at his wedding. Ronny asked if Jaidan would do him the honor of being a groomsman. After the wedding, Ronny’s wife Lisa joined Big Brothers Big Sisters and she and Ronny became a Big Couple.

 “It is a rare gift to have two exceptional people who care for Jaidan and his overall well-being,” Jaidan’s mom said.

Big Brother Ronny is glad he has had the opportunity to introduce Jaidan to his entire family and numerous friends. Big Sister Lisa says Jaidan’s ability to communicate with adults is admirable for a young man his age.

“Jaidan always leaves a positive impression because he is polite, engaged, respectful, caring, confident and interested,” Ronny said of Jaidan.

Now 17 years old, Jaidan will graduate high school next year, but that won’t change a thing about his relationship with his Big Couple.

 “Lisa and I remain committed to continuing this relationship with our Little Brother Jaidan for the rest of our lives,” said Ronny.

In 2014, Big Brothers Big Sisters served 8,124 children, but there are still nearly 3,000 waiting to be matched. Support Big Brothers Big Sisters today with a donation or by becoming a Big.
