This is a very difficult time in our family's life so we hope to find someone who fits right into our life to take a bit of burden off. my mom's illness has brought great stress and worry into our world, but also great appreciation for life. while we've managed for quite some time on our own, we are at a point where we (my husband and i) need to have time to take care of ourselves too, which is the main reason for searching for a nanny. we are very flexible in terms of hours and timing, but are constrained by budget so cannot offer a great number of hours at this point. so we hope to find someone who can work with a bit of a flexible schedule. we are a very loving family and can't wait to meet a nanny who will bring even more joy and love into our home!
