I have helped my sister raise her 2 beautiful daughters since the moment they were born. I love those girls like they are my own but unfortunately I have to get a good paying job because I'm not sure if my disability benefits are or ever will go through. I have always wanted a lot of children it just wasn't in the cards for me. I love watching and helping the children grow into loving, caring individuals.
