I have known the Ives for just about one year. I started working with their youngest daughter in Special Education. I was then asked to watch their daughters during the summer. I have gotten close to them and love them dearly. I got to go camping with them, shopping, helped the girls with summer school, swimming lessons, and gymnastics. I also plan on going back to school and watching their child after school to help her further herself. Whenever I have needed to leave early they have left work early or even called their Grandpa to come and help. They are one special family to me!
