Ginger and Lydia



Big Sister Ginger and Little Sister Lydia have been matched for 10 months. Ginger works for Veterinary Medicine at the University of Illinois and decided to become a Big Sister because a friend of hers was involved in the program. She believes in children having a positive influence in their lives. Little Sister Lydia is compassionate, non-judgmental, humorous, down to earth, and sticks up for the underdog. Lydia’s mom wanted to enroll her in the program to experience new things and learn new skills. So far, Big Sister Ginger and Little Sister Lydia have been to Curtis Orchard, got their nails done, went for ice cream, traveled to the Children’s Museum in Indianapolis, and made jewelry. They have fun every time they are together and are definitely experiencing new things and learning new skills together.
