I came to the USA in December 2000. In January 2001 I was privileged to be a Nanny to a new born baby boy. I took care of this baby for 4 years. I left after I gave birth to my own daughter. In 2005 I left my baby boy to help another family in Westchester who needed me. They had 2 kids a boy 4 and a girl 3. I took care of the kids for 3 years until they moved to Australia. After leaving there I took on another family which had 3 kids, twin boy and girl and an older girl. They were beautiful happy kids. I left the kids when the ventured off to school and didn't need me anymore. I took on a very different role as a General Manager of a fast food chain. I am presently an unfulfilled Manager with a large food Read more chain. I am yearning to get back to my first love developing a child. I need to be able to want to go to work.
