Hi my name is Della! I am originally from Texas but have lived in New Canaan for 18 years. My husband and I have raised 3 wonderful kids, they are all grown and educated. I have been babysitting here for 10 years. Prior to that I managed the Adirondack store in New Canaan. In Texas I worked with migrant children and as an aide with Special Ed for 4 years. I love working with children, especially the ones with special needs and Down Syndrome. My mother is 96 and lives in Texas, cared for by my oldest sister. I have always had a special love for children and the elderly. My precious husband and I married in 1977. On Sundays we would visit the Convalescent and Nursery homes for the elderly in San Francisco to entertain them with our voices...with music and song. There were a lot of tears. I have such compassion for the old for they were once young and vibrant. They all have families and they all have a story! Holidays were the most difficult, especially Christmas. I truly understand the needs of an elderly. I cared for my grandparents and my precious Mother that lived with me for years. What they need is Patience and Love!!!
My cup runneth over!!!
