Like many young women, I babysat children of all ages for family friends growing up. I have worked with children and young adults with intellectual disabilities professionally in the past. For the last year and a half I have worked with children ages newborn- 5 years who were born to addict mothers, many born addicted to substances. I am beginning a bachelors degree on children mental health and have decided I would stay home with my own children (2 girls, ages 2 and 4) while doing so. I would like to help a family by caring for their child while doing so.
