Serbian AuPairCare Au Pair

2013 Ultimate Au Pair Winner Dijana from Serbia

I love having Dijana in our home because she is not thought of as “help” but part of the family. She and I have a wonderful relationship. She knows what I expect and I know what she expects. And she’s always a step ahead of me. I am amazed how many times we are in the car and I say I forgot something only to find out she remembered it. Furthermore, she is consistently concerned about my children’s safety. She is always trying to teach my children and make each day a learning experience.

Colombian AuPairCare Au pair

2013 Ultimate Au Pair Finalist Cata from Colombia

Cata is the au pair of our dreams, except we wouldn’t have known to dream this big.

My husband and I are very blessed to have three wonderful kids – 4, 2 and 8 months – and two great jobs. However, with these blessings come, well, an insane schedule. And before our au pair, Cata, arrived, we were drowning.

German AuPairCare Au Pair

2013 Ultimate Au Pair Finalist Sandra from Germany

As we head into the second year of having Sandra as part of our household, I could not adequately find the words to describe how important she has become to our family. Our household is one comprised of two career professionals: one a Marine officer and one a corporate executive whose schedules always keep us on the go with frequent travel that is often overseas. Because of this, we find ourselves ever reliant upon our au pair Sandra to help make sure that the trains at home continue to run on time
