I moved back to Georgia and 2014. My sister at the time needed some help with her special needs son. He was a true blessing and miracle! He passed away May 29, 2015. Three months later my father passed away from pancreatic cancer. Then God blessed me with my own little miracle, my son will be one-year-old at the end of this month. Charles' personality is really developing, he just started walking and he's been a very enjoyable baby. I'm adding my services again, not just to be a nanny/babysitter, because I'm also looking for my son to be engaged with another child/children. I feel this will help him develop social skills, without me having to compromise his health, by enlisting him in a daycare center. I would be happy caring for an additional child or children, in my home or in yours. I have extensive knowledge with the babies, toddlers, special needs children, preteens and teens. Please contact me if you feel like this arrangement works with you & your family needs. * Depending on location and arrangements, I would consider relocating for the right family.

I have worked with many children, mostly young children and infants. I have also done overnight care from newborn to eight years old; once you've spent the night caring for a newborn, you can handle anything! Most recently ,I cared for twin toddlers, so I gained experience with multiples; i.e. I can run fast enough to stop one child from running in to the street and catch the other before they trip on the sidewalk.
