Waiting for a Mentor: Twice the fun

Recently 5-year-old twins were interviewed at Kinship Partners and are now waiting for mentors. The little girl, with shining eyes and a flair for fashion, wants to be a princess and loves to bake, cook and clean. Her brother, who is busy and curious, talks continuously of fishing.

What a breath of fresh air these two kids are. Are you someone who is an “empty nester” and now you have room in your life to begin a friendship with one of these adorable children? Can you see yourself holding hands and taking walks, shopping at the mall for a tiara or sitting at the end of a dock with a fishing rod and can of worms?

What will it be, a princess or a “rough and tumble” little boy? Your choice will affect the life of a child and change yours forever.

Kinship Partners serves families in Crow Wing County, southern Cass County and the Staples/Motley area by providing positive role models to youth from the ages of 5 to 14. We have offices in Brainerd, Pequot Lakes, Crosby and Staples.
