Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

We are a fun (at least we think so) family that is searching for an Au Pair to help us love our special needs son. We are looking for someone with a warm personality that would be easy to share our home with. We love cooking. We love traveling. We love reading. We love watching silly shows on tv. We love learning about new cultures, so if you are from one different than ours, we would welcome you with open arms and have a keen interest in learning all about you and your country.

We would love to include you in our family life. You will get the opportunity to get to know our culture, learn our language and have a great time abroad with a fun family. All of that in an attractive location in the center of Europe with easy access to many of Europe's most popular cities such as Berlin, Munich, Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris.

We just ask that when writing to us that you let us know why you are interested in being part of our family. What specifically about us makes you interested? Please also feel just to ask questions to see if we are a family that would work well with what you are looking for.

Job Description

When our son was five months old we found out that he was born with a rare brain malformation and, as a result, is developmentally handicapped. Due to the brain malformation, he also has seizures anywhere from zero to four times a day. We are trying new medications to help with the seizures, so we hope that they will decrease very soon.

He is the absolute sweetest little boy you could imagine with a delightful disposition and hardly ever gets angry or cries. With that enormous pro, comes the con of having to work a bit harder than with other kids that are at his age because his development is slower and therefore needs more attention and input. He is now almost 2 years old and he isn't able to walk yet so he has to be carried. It can be a tough and rewarding job all the same. The learning curve is a bit steep with epileptic children in that you have to learn the things that cause seizures and how to handle them before and when they happen. But it is all possible to learn and we are here to help you!

The main reason we are looking for an Au Pair is so that Ashley can have a few hours during the day to do something for herself and so we as a couple can have some time together an evening or two a week. We just need an extra helping hand from someone that has a loving heart and isn't afraid of learning how to help a special needs boy.
