Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear Au Pair,

We are so excited about having you join our family! There are four of us, Mommy – that’s me, my name is Sherry. My husband’s name is Tae (pronounced TAY). We have twin girls, although they are very different (as you can see from the pictures). Julia is our typical child, who is extraordinary sweet, kind and fun. Ava is our other precious gift. Ava has a chromosome deletion, so she needs lots of love and attention. They just turned thirteen years old, although Ava is non-verbal and more like 2 years old. She too is very loving and sweet. We have two small dogs, Praline and Gabby. All girls, except Daddy!

We are looking for a mature, kind, responsible, patient person who hopefully has experience with special needs children or is willing learn. We need help us with the girls in the mornings to get ready for school, some evenings and one or two days on the weekend. During the summer the schedule may vary a little bit since the kids aren’t in school. Most of the care will be for our special girl but we would love for you to be like a big sister to Julia (she has always wanted another sister!)

The atmosphere in our family is layed back, loving and fun. All our caregivers (past and present) are considered part of our family and you would be too! It will be your home too.

If you decide we are the right family for you, you would live in the suburbs not too far from Washington D.C. You would have a private bedroom, bath and small kitchen in our fully finished basement with TV and wireless access. We also have an extra car for you to use with the girls and as needed.

We look forward having another family member join us soon!

Sherry, Tae, Julia, Ava
Praline & Gabby

Job Description

The primary responsibility is for our special needs daughter Ava. She has a chromosome disorder and is non-verbal although she uses a device to tell us what she wants. Ava is very loving 13 year old but because of her disabilities, her mental capacity is like 2 year old. And like any 2 year old, she likes to explore & need guidance & support from the care taker. The applicant will need to have an open mind, patience and love for kids to take care Ava. Her twin sister Julia is very mature and self-sufficient and will not need much guidance. Julia will help out quite a bit with Ava and they have a special connection.
