Family from Georgia with their Chinese Au Pair

Ultimate Au Pair Finalist, JunYun Ann from China

Is this my house? Are these my 3 rambunctious kids all playing happily?  As I walked into the playroom, the walls were covered in artwork, my kids were playing games yet all other toys were put away, there was an activity board full of stickers and accolades and not one kid was crying or complaining. As a matter of fact, nowadays my kids really only complain about not being able to spend more time with Ann.

Ultimate Au Pair Finalist, Une from South Africa

What impressed me the most about Uné was her eagerness and willingness to jump on a plane to come 18 hours away from her home into a family that she only knew via email and Skype, and that she was not intimidated whatsoever with the fact that we had five children, and the sixth on the way. Her boldness and positive attitude has stood out since day one, not to mention her gentleness and loving ways with the children
