Yawa spent two days with my toddler when she was home sick from daycare. It was the first time that we had hired someone for emergency backup care and we were a bit anxious about leaving our daughter with someone that she hadn't ever met, but finding Yawa was such a blessing! My daughter took to her right away, and spent the whole evening talking about what fun they had during the day. We will definitely be reaching out to Yawa again in the future, and I highly recommend her as a sitter!
