Jerilyn and Ierlyn are to be matched 8 years in December. At the time of introduction, Ierlyn was 6 years old living with her grandmother and 3 siblings. Ierlyn was looking to improve her social skills and working on overall education.
Now Ierlyn is 14 years old being matched with Jerilyn all this time. One would think after all of these years, the match would run out of things to do together but this is not the case. One of their first outings together, the match had spent the outing making jewelry together and getting to know each other. Their most recent outings, the match made jewelry and crafted together.
The large reason the match has been able to continue for so many years together is the two being comfortable talking with each other about difficult subjects. The match has a special bond of being able to communicate openly with each other and know that the other is going to give advice that will help. Their openness has allowed them to continue their match while making personal life changes while still making the other a priority. These two are very understanding of each other.
