I spent 1 year in Early Child Education working with infants up to 3yr olds. I went to work for the Missouri Department of Mental Health where I worked in private home settings caring for Special Needs Children ranging in age from 5 to 13. I spent many years caring for other people's children as I was to never have one of my own or so I was told. At the age of 31 I was blessed with a little miracle whom I stayed home to raise and educate. My son is now 16 and my pride and joy!
