I’ve spent the majority of my time since high school caring for children. Children have added so much to my life. Each child that I’ve had the privilege of caring for has left a special place in my heart.
I taught 1st and 2nd grade at Bethel Mennonite School for two years. Unfortunately, my pictures from that season of life weren’t digital. I do find it hard to believe that my first graders are now driving!
After my teaching experience, I enjoyed getting to know Caroline Whitesell and her family.
Scottie and I spent many happy hours outside. He loved playing in the sandbox and taking short walks with me. He missed him mommy lots though and was always delighted to see her pull up in the drive way.
Later I had the opportunity to help care for Henry. I still remember him saying, “Hug for me please!”
Luke and Charlotte Libbey have been a part of my life most recently.
Dawson Miles, my little nephew, is a bundle of energy. I love spending time with him. This picture was taken when he was just a little fellow. Now He’s three years old!
Children don’t outgrow your heart! Thank you to each of these dear children and many more who’ve brightened my days and taught me so much. Thank you to each parent who has entrusted me with one of God’s most precious gifts, your child.
