We don’t expect you to have all the answers. However, we expect you to have a few questions. It is important to understand that as a Big, you are never alone. A professional staff person will have regular contact with you to offer advice, support and encouragement. There are also bimonthly group activities. These are entirely optional, but many Bigs & Littles enjoy them as it provides a change of pace and an opportunity to meet other Bigs and Littles.
If you and your spouse would like to share some of your time together with a child, you may consider becoming a Big Couple. Big Couples must be at least 21 years old and married for a minimum of two years. As a couple, you are in a unique position to provide an enriching family experience for a Little Brother.
If you haven’t reviewed the FAQs for Bigs, you’ll want to check them out as well. You are also welcome to contact our office at 301.739.4711.
