We have been awarded for almost five years we do not have friends or family here, with that being said the children are usually always with me at least one of them is at all times so they are not used to being left with anybody other than maybe one or two people and that is very very short duration and that would only if I would be in the hospital like when an overnight and that has only happened once. My6-year-old what adapt way quicker to the idea of someone else watching him for a little bit then my 10yr old would as he does not trust people do to he has been through alot in past. However they are very well-mannered and very polite they may act up for me but whenever I would have to run out and do something they do not act up for any one else. They both have psychiatric diagnosis, along with being on the autism spectrum and have other disabilities, however I I assure you that you cannot tell by looking at them or by their actions and how active they are that there is anything at all wrong with them. They're very particular with their food and what goes on at and how it is prepared and what it is. Once I find somebody who fits what I'm looking for I am better able to explain I also have charts in the house that help. . Additional needs include meal prep, having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. We could use help with homework or curriculum assistance.
