My experience with children has increased in the last two years, I had a friend that had a child and I assisted her with some expenses of the child and responsibilities of taking care of her. I then was introduced to a family. They had a struggle with a couple of miscarriages and got lucky and had baby Caroline. I have been watching her for over a year mostly Mondays and Wednesdays but almost always 1 or 2 more days during the week. I watched her for 3 years and then they moved to Minnesota. I have worked the last 3 years next month with children with special needs, in a group home setting and in a school.
