Laney needed someone in her life who could act as a friend, a mentor and a sibling figure. She’s a very mature little girl and just needs someone to be a kid with.

Big Brothers, Big Sisters’ Big Sky branch was lucky enough to have Blythe Beaubien apply as a Big Sister and instantly knew she and Laney would be a perfect match. Upon their first meeting, they were fast friends and already talking about ideas for weekly outings.

They’ve been matched for eight months now and have enjoyed cooking classes, ice skating and skiing, but most of all they love a nice cup of hot chocolate together.

“[It’s been] very rewarding,” Beaubien said. “Laney is a ray of sunshine and I truly enjoy spending time with her each week.”

Big Brothers, Big Sisters is supported by Lone Pine Builders and The Fairways at Big Sky. Contact Jolene Clark at (406) 855-6544 or jolene.clark@bbbs-gc.org for more information. BBBS is currently taking applications for both mentors and students at bbbs-gc.org.
