Like any other young teen age girl, I grew up babysitting all though junior high and high school. I babysat most of the kids on my block along with a few other families they would give my number to. These days I mainly care for my little cousins when needed. Last year a cared for two of the most beautiful infant boys you have ever seen, granted they are family but I loved every minute I spent with them. I have spent the last 11 months on a missionary trip that brought me to 11 countries. Out of those months, 7 were spent with kids. Some of the kids I spent time with had family members in rehab. Some I met at youth camps we helped put on and others were at orphanages. The months spent with kids were by far my favorite.
