Were matched 8 years. Match ended in March of 2010. Big and Little are still in touch. Just prior to end of the match the Little had a child of his own at the age of 18. While the Big was surprised and concerned, he says the child is showing some responsibility. The Little is still following his plan to go into the military – a lifetime dream, and he is planning on marrying the mother of the child before he goes. He has also contacted the military to make necessary housing arrangements for his soon to be wife and their new child. The Big continues to be a part of his life and probably always will be there in some capacity. The Big is also looking to come back to the agency to be matched with another child, and even mentioned that his own wife is interested in becoming a Big Sister too.
