A waiting game for local group

The walls of Kim Gilpatrick's Rock Falls home are covered with photographs of her four children. In March 2012, Gilpatrick, a single mother, decided she wanted her children to have another adult figure in their lives and signed them up with Big Brothers Big Sisters. Their experience reflects what many Sauk Valley families have seen. The girls, 10-year-old Tatum Glenn and 9-year-old Eden Glenn, were matched quickly, within a week or two, but 13-year-old Darian Gilpatrick waited nearly a year to be matched with his "big," as the mentors are called.
