I was privledged to have been given the oppprtunity to care for a few families that had wonderful children ranging from infant to six years old. These children were the light of my life and would not have changed a thing. I was able to not only help the children learn new skills, but they helped me learn many things as well. That in itself is the best reward. When the familie's daughter decides to call me their hero, you know you've been doing a good job. I hope I can find my next long term career with another beautiful, wholesome family.
