Profile

My whole life has been spent caring for other people. I enjoy it, and I'm really good at it. I first cared for somebody else when I was twelve. My dad worked at Greene valley and we decided to adopt a man named Freddie hall. He had epilepsy and severe mental disorders. He lived in home with us for 6 years before he passed away. I'm a mother of the most amazing little 8 year old boy. He has Asperger's syndrome, We caught it early so he's starting to do better and even excel in school. When my son was three we moved in with my great uncle. We had free room and board, as long as I took care of him. He is a paraplegic, from the waist down he's paralyzed. Two years ago it got so bad his daughters had no choice but to put him in a nursing home. And last year my dad went into septic shock, and had several strokes. His mental capabilities are severely diminished now, and he can hardly take care of himself. He is also in liver failure and awaiting a transplant., but he took care of me my whole life, the least I can do is return that favor. I love caring for others, I'm an excellent cook, and I actually enjoy cleaning. I hope that if you choose me, it will be because you trust that your loved ones are being cared for with the dignity and respect they deserve. I too know what it's like to be terrified that somebody you love more than anything isn't getting the care and attention they need.
