Valentina G. - Runner Up

 

Congratulations to Valentina G. of Italy

Nominated by the Bertoli Family in Massachusetts!


 "Before having an au pair, I was nervous about the idea of having another person come live with us. Valentina’s warmth and participation as a member of our family has convinced me that having an au pair is the best balance between having a babysitter and having family care for our children.

When Valentina arrived, my daughter was dead set on making her life miserable. A strong-willed child who is not a fan of transition, she screamed “No Valentina!” at the top of her lungs for the first two months. To make matters worse, we had asked Valentina to only speak Italian so that our kids would pick it up quickly- unfortunately, they were not yet speaking Italian back to her. Valentina took this hiccup in stride with grace and maturity. She was not turned off but rather used her creativity and loving personality to win them over- doing endless art and baking projects, thinking up magical creative games like playing with flashlights and pretend “tents” in their room, and taking them on nature walks. Valentina let the kids snuggle in her bed and get close to her, going the extra mile. She dug right in and in those two months, established a relationship with my daughter that rivals mine in the best way possible. Valentina is now the recipient of my daughter’s rare displays of affection. 

Valentina G. WebsiteMy son, on the other hand, took to Valentina more easily but has had a rockier road. Unfortunately, he needed to have major surgery during Valentina’s time with us, causing us to rely even more on Valentina for care at home (since he was out of school). She cleared her schedule for the month of my son’s surgery and even arranged her vacation home to Italy around this planned event. She came to the hospital to visit and decorated the house with colorful signs and goodies for his return. She has been attentive to his condition, contacting me with any concerns, and made me so relieved that we have had her as part of our family during this stressful time.

Valentina knows when to be a best buddy- taking the kids out to a restaurant for a special treat or on a special outing- and when to discipline, calmly and firmly. She always asks me how I would like things done, whether it comes to the house or the kids. There are things she asks me that I have never even considered, like if I would like help when I am home with the kids, if it would be a disturbance for her to use the hair dryer, if she can pack me lunch for me to take to work. She tells me the “real deal,” reporting daily to me via text if they behaved, ate, etc. She sends photos almost daily- a working mother’s dream. I feel as though I really have a handle on what is going on in the house." 

"Valentina has settled right into life in the U.S. She is a champion shopper and extrovert; she has perfected her English by speaking to anyone who will engage her. She has also explored New England, always on the lookout for sporting events, local festivals, and hot new restaurants. One glance at her calendar shows a schedule jam-packed with friends, events, and weekends away to new places. She is the one member of her au pair circle who reliably attends meetings and will go so far as to skip a weekend with her boyfriend to be home for a meeting. 

I am thrilled that Valentina extended her au pair experience for a second year with us and I am already starting to dread the idea of her leaving. She will be a lifelong friend and family member and she has completely sold me on the au pair program. However, our next au pair has some big shoes to fill!"

What Our Host Families Say

  • John - CO

    A little over two years ago, I lost my wife Patty to cancer. With a huge hole in our home from the loss of Patty, Svetlana stepped in and helped Bryce feel loved and cared for during a situation that is difficult to imagine and understand. She has seen us through many tears and sadness, but brought so much safety and comfort into our home. I honestly don’t know how we could have made it the past few years without her.
     
  • LindseyMary

    Lindsey - CA

    Mary Luisa or lulu as we call her entered our family at a challenging time in early July. I was 7 months pregnant and our son was starting to act out as he realized a new baby was on the way. Rocket met Mary and instantly fell in love. He was so excited his new best friend would be living in our house. From day one lulu stepped in and has been there for our son and helped make the new baby transition easier on the whole family.
     
  • Ornela

    Keith - MD

    It was a very terrifying thought for me to entrust my children to someone else, but I can say with whole hearted enthusiasm, we really "hit the jackpot" with Ornela. She has taken our twins from speaking greek words to being completely bilingual! To see the confidence and ability that they have is in a large part dedicated to her. We can truly see the pride and love that she has for Georgia and Peter. Ornela has really become a part of our family, not just an au pair.
     
  • NozomiStevenson

    The Stevenson Children - MD

    These past four months with our au pair have been the best experience ever! She even rode the Tower of Terror at Disney World with us three times. Tell us how many au pairs will do that for their host family kids! Our au pair is very special and we love her just like a family member. She does so much for our family and we just want to tell everyone how awesome she is to us!
     
  • Effie

    Patricia

    We feel fortunate as parents to have Effie in our family, especially in our busy lives when being away from home and the children during the day can often be very stressful. She makes our life easier, giving us the confidence that our kids are safe, in good hands and with the right direction!
     
  • Lissy

    Audrey - FL

    Lissy has exceeded every expectation we had for an au pair and has become just like another family member. I have said time and time again that you guys must do an amazing job screening these applicants. Although now I would have a hard time doing this again because I don't know if we could ever top Lissy!
     
  • MaureenSatoko

    Maureen - MI

    We have had several au pairs in our home and we feel very glad and are very lucky that Satoko came to us. I don't want to jinx anything because this is only the second week but I can tell you that Satoko is golden. We are grateful to Au Pair International for introducing her to us!
