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.
Tara was in kindergarten when we started meeting at school in 2010. I was babysitting three days a week for two of my grandchildren and had visits from my others regularly I visited with Tara on days that I had off from my Grammy duties.
