Janette & Dara
These matches have been together for 3 years. They are a set of unique matches because brother and sister are matched with a husband and wife. Dara and Jeannette, and Logan and Jade have been through a lot together. Jeannette and Jade make such a great team, throughout the three years Jade has had to deploy multiple times and Jeannette was able to maintain contact with Logan for Jade. Dara and Logan have really integrated well into Jade and Jeanette’s life. During the summers when school is out, the matches do a lot of swimming and Little’s are able to interact with Jeanette and Jade’s sons. Jade has been able to see Logan grow into a confident and social young man. Logan’s mother expressed that Jade had a part in Logan’s growth. He is active in sports and excels in school. Logan told our Match Support Specialist about Jade: “He understands how I feel and the way I think”. That is what we hope every Little feels in their match. Dara and Jeannette have built a strong relationship and have respect for one another. Dara and Jeanette are able to talk about almost anything. Jeanette is supportive of Dara’s volleyball game and they enjoy attending football games together. Both of these matches are very strong and have grown into very healthy and supportive relationships.
