Kinship Partners boast strong relationship

December Match of the Month - Pam Beaulieu and Amanda Fast Horse.

Pam Beaulieu and Amanda Fast Horse are Kinship Partners’ Match of the Month for December.

This pair has been together for a year and a half and they already illustrate a strong relationship that will undoubtedly last well into the future.

Pam is grandmother to seven, but that doesn’t keep her from including Amanda in her busy life.

“She is part of the family. Everyone gets along and we have a lot of fun,” she said.

There is also plenty of one-on-one time between Pam and Amanda. Some of their favorite things to do include playing board games, making a meal, watching movies and doing crafts and seasonal outside activities. Sometimes they just sit and talk about their day and what is going on in their lives.

Pam says she is learning tons and tons from Amanda, and she really feels appreciated. She encourages others to consider becoming a mentor.

“Adults have more to offer than they think and will get more out of (mentoring) than they put in,” she said.
