I have taken care of children my entire life, whether it has been my younger cousins that are now off to college or my much younger siblings who are growing up before my eyes. I was there in my teenage years and recent times during the birth to adolescence of my three younger siblings. I have babysat for families in their homes. I have performed direct care for a 16 year-old girl who had a severe seizure disorder and had to be monitored all day. I was with her in her home 40 hours a week and helped her with everything from bathing to homework. I work in the nursery at church and also do missions trips in which I work with children in orphanages. Most recently, I was a live in nanny to a 5 year-old boy who had a severe brain injury an his 11 year old sister. He required a lot of care and also had to be monitored 24 hours a day. Although I have worked under some situations some may call "difficult", ALL kids are my passion!
