FORT WAYNE, In. -- Did you know there are over 500 kids on the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana waiting list?  Did you know 70% of those kids are boys? Here are a few boys that have been featured previously that are still waiting for the special mentor.

What Shawn is looking for in a Big... just someone to share with.

"Tell him what I like and don't like and ask each other questions and stuff, what you like to do about your life."

Shawn likes sports, including wrestling, basketball, and football, and would love to go to a TinCaps game with a Big this summer.

Devon has eight sisters, so having a Big Brother would make a BIG difference.  He loves animals and hopes to turn that passion into a career.

"My goal is to become an animal scientist."

With a Big, he just wants to have fun.

"I would like to go to putt-putt and Thunderbowl."

M.J. is full of energy and life.  He's happy and funny and loves playing games, watching movies, and anything to do with science.  He's been on the waiting list for nearly four years, but still hopes there is a special Big Brother out there for him.

Being a Big only takes a few hours, a few times a month. That small amount of time can make a world of difference.

To find out more about becoming a big to Shawn, Devon, or M.J. call Big Brothers Big Sisters at 456-1600.
