Dallas Owen has been matched with his Little Brother Emerald for almost a year in our Community Based Program. Dallas and Emerald have a fun-loving friendship and can have a great time doing just about anything.
Whether it’s feeding the ducks at the park, eating ice cream, attending Big Brothers Big Sisters events, or going to a Sounds game - these guys make the most of their time together. Dallas recently became a father and, while adjusting to life with a new baby, still makes time for his Little Brother. Emerald is very appreciative of the time Dallas spends with him, as evidenced by a recent happening.
He recently won a pair of Predators tickets at school and his response was, “I want to take Mr. Dallas because Mr. Dallas always takes me fun places.” Mom has noticed Emerald listens to her better and is more easy-going since being matched with Dallas. She recently told me that seeing Dallas always brightens Emerald’s day – we’re sure the feeling is mutual!
