Professional Baby Sitter And Foster Parent
I have 6 years experience working with foster children and adopted one of them. Our adopted child, was 7 years old when he came to us and is turning 21 this year. Four of the 6 years was with foster children. The other 2 years consisted of being a Guardian Ad Litem volunteer and a Social Worker, working title was Family Care Manager. I most recently babysat for my niece in Orlando, while her parents worked. I also helped raise my step-son, who lived with us, from age 12 to 17. I babysat for neighbors children, as a teen. I also took care of my nieces and nephews on many occasions, even over night or weekend stays. Guardian Ad Litem (GAL)volunteer for 2 years, was a foster parent for 4 years and took care of our adopted foster son for 13 years, since he was 7 years old. Worked as a Family Care Manager (basically a social worker) handling 9 children, from 6 families.
