Our daughter has been with my husband and me as her sole caretakers for 13 months. She has troubles warming up to others initially and she's active and learning sign language to help her with communicating her needs (other than screams). We have two large dogs. Our ideal caregiver: Someone who is compassionate and kind, mindful and intelligent with loads of patience and a loving energy. Sense of humor and bilingual is an added plus Additional needs include having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my 1-year-old daughter. My schedule may vary.
