I am a 20-year-old college student with lots of experience with children! I love creating a safe and positive environment for children! I help resolve conflicts and help kids stay focused on tasks such as chores and homework. I love planning fun activities, playing games, and reading books. I enjoy staying active, playing sports, and being outside. Recently I have taken care of three boys who are 7, 10, and 14 years-old; the 14-year-old boy has cerebral palsy. My family has been a part of Safe Family Lydia Home Association from 2009-2014. Through this organization we have opened up our home and provided a safe and loving environment for 20 different children in need of short term placements. The age of children ranged from 2 weeks old to 5 years old, and they were a part of our family anywhere from a day to several months. I have also volunteered Read more as an intern at Christian Youth Theater's Summer Camp and was a Volunteer at the Orchard Evangelical Free Church Mom's Day Out Program. I own my own car. I am very reliable and have lots of experience with all ages. I truly enjoy being around children!
