I am number 9 of 13 children. My sister ran Catholic Charities when I was young and in addition to our brood she would sometimes bring home teenage moms. My parents also fostered babies for a time. I also have 70 nieces and nephews, all except two living within 20 minutes of my home. In addition to family and plenty of outside babysitting, in high school and collage I worked for 5 years at Child Abuse Prevention Services supervising infants and toddlers and helping in child/parent interaction. Upon graduating from Notre Dame, I spent many hours with children in the missions all over the world, including orphanages in Siberia, South Africa and Tanzania. Whenever my sisters had babies (and it was multiple times a year) I would come home and take care of their other children -truly like a full-time job. Infants and toddlers are my specialty. I also was Read more the full-time caregiver (on and off) of my brother's five young children as he struggled with cancer three times over seven years.Each time he got sick again I would come home from the missions to take full-care of his children since his wife was busy with him usually out of town. I also spent about 6 months helping a friend with nightcare of her adopted newborn twin grandbabies -they were sickly and on heart and breathing monitoring machines. In her 70's she and her husband received full custody of them and were exhausted -so I would come from about 5 until after midnight so she could get some rest. I spent the last year working 80 hours a week as a night/morning and then day nanny for newborn triplets in Chicago. I need to gather funds to return to the missions and babies are my specialty. I was volunteering at a Home for Abandoned Babies and Children the past few months and they offered to hire me full-time, yet I could not find safe housing nearby (they lived in a very dangerous area).
