It is easy to see that our caregivers are the backbone of our program - without these dedicated women we could not do what we do. They spend countless hours feeding, bathing, changing diapers, administering medications, and most of all, comforting little people who have no one else to love them.
Although we cannot offer a high salary or other attractive benefits, we like to give them each something special at Chinese New Year. This year we will give each nanny a small bottle of hand lotion, a bag of candy, and two photos. Each nanny will receive a picture of herself working, and one of her special baby. It's not much, but we hope this small gift will tell them how much we appreciate the work they do.
The photos below are the some of the ones we will be printing and presenting to our caregivers in the next few days. If you cannot visit us in person, here is a chance to see some of the beautiful faces of Little Flower.
By now you are probably wondering how many nannies there are, and why we need so many? We have three shifts of caregivers each day, and each shift is caring for approximately 30 special need and medically fragile infants. We need 10-15 nannies working each shift to provide the special care that these babies require.
