Theresa moved to NZ, into our family, at a chaotic time when we
were moving house. After her first week she was already settled in
as a member of the family and the kids were loving having her
around. She not only adapted really well into her new lifestyle,
she adapted amazingly well into ours. We are not the easiest family
to live with. We speak two languages at home, Portuguese and
English, we don't watch TV and we are really conscious about what
our family eats, meaning small amounts of processed foods but lots
of real food and veggies, and also very strict with our
Theresa is always willing to help and learn and always comes up
with new ideas. She's a fab hand in the kitchen and has taught us
lots and never fails to improvise a dessert for special occasions.
She includes the kids when cooking and they have so much fun.
Often, they can't wait for us to get home to try one of their new
recipes. The kids are calmer, most of the time, when around her.
Bella loves playing with Playdoh and reading while Ed loves
colouring and playing with Lego. Her calm approach gives the kids
and us a sense of security. Her positivity and happiness make us
happy. She is also very good photographer. She made the kids
birthday party very special, making a cake and helping with the
favours, which was unforgettable. She has taught them a bit of
German and makes an effort to learn and speak Portuguese.
We just can't imagine when it comes time to say goodbye, not
having this sweet, beautiful girl around our family.
You made these months so easy, thank you from the bottom of our
Ich Liebe Dich Theresa!
