FORT WAYNE, In. -- Nine year old Tayjean enjoyed the weather at Swinney Park with WFFT's Kristen Kirchhaine. They played games and talked about why Tayjean wants a Big Brother.

"So I could get out of the house sometimes while my dad's at work."

Tayjean hopes having a Big Brother would be fun, but also an opportunity to learn new things.

"I want to try out hockey. Go skating, go to the movies, and go bowling and go paintball."

Tayjean has a large family.

"I got four sisters and two brothers."

And they all have Bigs, except him.  Tayjean's tenth birthday is coming up in August and he would like nothing more than to get a Big for his birthday.  If you'd like to find out more about how to become a Big to Tayjean, or learn more about mentoring, call Big Brothers Big Sisters at 456-1600.
