June 2018 Match Spotlight

Jacob and Coty!

The match between Jacob and Coty started in 2014 while Jacob was still attending elementary school. They would meet in the morning for approximately one hour each week. When Coty's work schedule called for him to be at work earlier, he asked if he would be allowed to come in later to remain with his "Little". His employer agreed that the match was important enough to allow the change in the work schedule. Later, when Jacob moved up to middle school the morning meetings would no longer work out. In 2015 they both decided that they enjoyed being together and moved into a Community Based match. Now when they meet they enjoy playing basketball, going to the movies, and hanging out together. Jacob stated that his relationship with Coty meant alot to him and Coty explained that he felt like they were family.
