It took some time but we were given the perfect match for David. In this instance, “good things really do come to those who wait." say David's Mom Sara.
"Little Brother David really enjoys the time he spends with Big Brother Paul. Not only does Paul take David on some pretty exciting adventures that I wouldn’t be able to provide him with because of my financial restrictions, but he also provides books for David. David is an avid reader and he is always happy to discuss books with his “Big Brother”.
"Paul deserves to win this contest because he has been well worth the wait, and what he gives David is not something that money could ever buy. His gift is not something tangible, but winning this contest is at least a good way to recognize him for all he does for David."
