A Rewarding Year
My decision to spend a year as an au pair in the USA was definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made. I had the best host family I could ever ask for! They were warm and welcoming but most of all I was treated as one of the family. I took care of three children Lukas 6, Anne-Sophie 4 and Alexander 5 months (on my arrival). In my year I watched them grow and learn. The most rewarding part of being an au pair for me was earning the love and trust of my host children.
My au pair year was filled with fun, laughter, friendship and love. I made some incredible friends from all over the world and gained another family. Although my year will come to an end, the memories and friendships made in the USA will last a lifetime. I would not trade my experience for anything in the world.
Being an au pair will change your life just as it has mine . – Merrilyn Athorn au pair in Massachuesetts
