What was the highlight of your placement?

The children!!! I know it sounds 'cliche' but I was extremely fortunate to get placed with 3 children with HUGE personalities! Other highlights so far include, birth of baby number 3 in July, trips to families beach house in Long Beach Island, orientation in New York, weekend trip to Rhode Island and weekend in Boston! Who'd have thought I've only been here 3 months. Looking forward to Autumn and winter where ill be going to Puerto Rico in December over Christmas.

Please describe your relationship with your host family

I fell I have been incredibly lucky with the host family I was placed in. My host family are extremely kind and supportive. They made me feel incredibly welcome and do all they can to ensure I gain as much out of this whole experience as possible! I help look after 3 children who are 4, 2, and a 1 month old baby. It is extremely hard work, very challenging and test me every day, but they are so worth it! They have the best personalities I could ever imagine and they are a joy to care for! I am learning and growing so much as a person already..
