Why I Want A Big: “It would be fun to have a Big who I could go places and learn new things with!”
Personality: Colin likes staying active, playing sports and likes to learn new things he is interested in. Colin can be shy at first, but once he gets to know you, he opens up.
Interests: Colin likes to be active, playing sports—especially basketball! Colin is currently playing in two basketball leagues and also enjoys riding his bike, going to the movies, kickball, video games and would like to learn about most active sports. Colin also likes being outside and would try most outdoor activities. Colin thinks it would be cool if his Big could teach him a few things to cook.
Things You Can Do Together:
- Shoot some hoops together
- Explore places around Plymouth
- Go for a bike ride through the state forest
Why He Needs a Big: Colin’s mom would like for him to have a Big who can be an additional support for him and can be a sounding board. Colin lives with his mom and cousins and having someone “all his own” would give him a lot of positive attention and provide an additional outlet.
