27 Kids Who Matter: Victor and the Paulsons


MADISON (WKOW) -- Spending time together being active and out in the community brings one area family closer together.

In our continuing series, "27 Kids Who Matter" we introduce you to Victor.

Sometimes a little is matched with an entire family in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

He was matched with the Paulsons through Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Dane County.

"We go swimming, we bake, we go bike riding, we go to the zoo," said Hope Paulson. The Paulsons and Victor do it all, including rock climbing. On the weekends, it's time to have fun, relax and be active.

"We probably do more outings as a family than we did before." it gives us a reason to get out with the family, instead of staying at home and watching TV." said Dan Paulson.

Dan, Hope, Amber and Jake Paulson were matched with Victor about a year and a half ago.

"This is a great opportunity to learn the perspective of another family and understand the challenges," said Dan Paulson.

Amber, Victor and Jake spend time together playing the video game, MineKraft. It's one of their favorite activities to do together.
