Lindsay became a part of the Family from the very first day. I am blown away at her hard work, dedication, organisation skills and most of all the love she showers on my daughters. She is bringing up my daughter the way I would if I were a stay at home mum. As a mother, I feel very safe and comfortable leaving my children with Lindsay and I cannot give a higher praise than that. I sincerely hope that Lindsay will be a part of the Family for a long time.
