In June 2017, Kaleb and TJ became Brothers. Kaleb, 14, enjoys playing Pokémon, eating pizza and going for bike rides with his Big Brother. TJ had the influence of his family growing up, and was seeking a way to share his time and experience with a young man who needed it.
While TJ has helped to expand Kaleb’s horizons and help him participate in many new activities, Kaleb has actually done the same thing for TJ during their time matched together. “My favorite thing about being matched with Kaleb is the new experiences we share together and discovering things through our time together that I didn’t know I would like,” says TJ.
Kaleb and TJ look forward to the many adventures they have in the future, and TJ can’t wait to see all that Kaleb accomplishes as he grows up. He hopes that Kaleb will have the chance to go to college to pursue his dream career and that he grows up to be a respectful adult. No matter what Kaleb chooses to do in the future, the influence that TJ has had on him will help him succeed and provide him with a strong foundation to reach for his goals.
