It is only my 8-year-old daughter and myself. I have full custody of her and she hasn't seen her dad in years. We are very close. Still sleep in the same bed and as she gets older its become harder and that couple w my parents failing help I find now I too need help. . Our ideal caregiver: I want to know that my child is happy and laughing and I can get in touch with her anytime. . Additional needs include having a reliable car. Flexible start date. My schedule may vary.
