  • Big Sister finds many rewards in spending time with her ‘Little’

    By JUDY CHOWNING

    Special to the News-Democrat

    Why did I want to be a Big Sister when I had four grandchildren under the age of four?

    I thought I could give an hour a week to make a child feel as special as I tried to make my own grandchildren feel.
