Sara was great! We took longer than expected but she was very accommodating. My son loved her and so did the puppies. She was wonderful.

Sara was GREAT!! It was very, very helpful that she understood ADHD and autism (for my oldest child) and she interacted beautifully with my other two children as well. They didn't want her to leave!!!
