Live-in position available, as well as part-time and full-time options. We are excited to offer this unique opportunity for the right person to come alongside our family, helping us care for former orphans who are now adopted into our family, but require extra care due to their special needs. We have an immediate opening. I (Lorraine, mom to all these precious kiddos) was diagnosed with a rare blood cancer at age 43 and had a heart attack at age 47 (March of 2010), and we really need extra help. We are a large adoptive Jesus-loving family, with an orphan ministry in memory of our daughter, Chrissie. We have 12 children, adopted from around the world. 4 kiddos have Down syndrome, 1 has Autism & brain malformations. Applicants should have a heart for people who have special needs. We need someone who is compassionate, selfless, honest, hard-working, committed, capable, and caring. Prefer a year commitment if possible. Caregivers only have 1-2 children at a time.
