Linda H. - Seeking Work in Martinsville

I am a single mother of a beautiful daughter. She just completed her Masters Degree at Purdue University. I claim her as my proudest achievement. Caring for my own child has given me a lifetime of experience. I am still learning and she is a married adult out of her own. At the age of 13, I began babysitting for a family of six children over a period of three years. I have also taken care of many children of family members and friends including my younger brother. I began working as a Nanny for a delightful little baby when he was six weeks old. I still care for him and his little brother but not as a job but as a chance to visit the two little boys that I love very much as my own grandsons. The boys and their mother are part of my family now. They spend the day or overnight with me on a regular basis. I have also cared for other children on an as needed basis for social and other events.

I got my first nephew at age four, changed my first diaper at six, and have been going ever since. I babysat outside the family through jr. high and high school and worked for a sitting service for conventions and another private day care. My first child (of four) was my parents' eighteenth grandchild. I have 30 nieces and nephews, eight grandchildren of my own, and have lost track of the great grandchildren.
