I am Chinese and have been here for 5 months.
I have many brothers and sisters in my family, and I have taken care of them since I was young. I like to keep my house in order. I like children, and I can take good care of them.
Sorry my language is not very good, but if you want your child to learn Chinese at the same time it would be a good choice.
