Editor's note: This is the fourth in a four-part series featuring local mentorships, in recognition of National Mentoring Month. Starting Feb. 28, we will be publishing information on local children waiting to be mentored. Called "Kinship Corner," the new feature will run on a monthly basis, focusing on one child per month, for as long as the need is there.


Sometimes becoming a child's mentor really means becoming something infinitely more - a lifelong friend.
