I was a babysitter and nursery worker in my church for years before I got the privilege to become a nanny for 3 wonderful children. These kids were vibrant and full of life and I dedicated myself to caring for them as if they were my own. I took care of a 9 month old, 3 year old special needs boy, and a sassy little 6 year old. I have more patience than you may hope to ever see in a woman of my age.
