Meet our January Match of the Month!
Connor and Giovanni have been matched since October of 2018 and recently celebrated their one year anniversary together. They are having a wonderful time together and have both committed to another year in the program.
Giovanni is filled with intelligence and energy. His big, Connor, has energy to match and staying active in their match meetings is important to them. The YMCA, Putt Putt and Skating Rink are some of their favorite spots. They also like to go swimming, play basketball, have dinners together and play games. They also share a common interest in engineering. Giovanni says that he wants to be an engineer like Connor when he grows up.
If you ask either of them, they are brothers and treat each other like family. Connor is one of Giovanni's favorite people in the world. He admires him and looks up to him greatly. Connor really enjoys Giovanni's company and enjoys the activities that they get to do together.
Everyone involved in this match makes a great team and works together for the success of Giovanni. Giovanni has worked very hard this year at school and has improved his grades and behavior. His father said Giovanni's grades and attitude are the reflection of everyone working together, dedicated to this match and making sure it is built to last. Congratulations Connor, Giovanni and family for being the match of the month!
