"I am so thankful for all that ADPi has given me. Amazing memories, wonderful friends, strong values, and one of my favorites: My Diamond Family! ADPi pairs each girl with an older diamond sister, or "big," shortly after Bid Day. When I was paired with Kate, I could not have been more happy. She has become one of my closest friends and we just get each other. We have become so incredibly close and I cannot imagine doing life without her. She's even come home with me to Florida a couple times :) Our family doesn't stop there. My grand-big, Margie, is one of the most amazing people I have ever met. She is just the friend everyone longs to have. It's hard to think of Samford without her, but she's doing big things in NYC now! This past year, I got a "little." Madeline! Ah! I love this girl. She continually inspires me and always encourages me. She has the biggest heart and I'm so thankful she's mine. I'm so grateful ADPi gave me this family. We are all so close and I'm so thankful God had a hand in choosing these girls. They've blessed me more than they know! I can't wait to add to the fam in the fall!"
