Little Kiara and Big Victoria

Little Kiara and Big Victoria

Little Kiara and Big Victoria have been matched for five years at our College of Saint Rose program. They have enjoyed doing many activities together, such arts and crafts.  Outside of the program they often talk about school and what’s going on in each other's lives. Kiara once stated that she could talk to Victoria about anything which has made her feel even more happy to be her Little.
