First there is God, with God you can become a caregiver, he put love in your heart for people, all people.i have 5 children plus 3 step children and 29 grandchildren all together a lot of love going on. There are a lot of people out there that need a lot of taking care of and they need someone that cares. What I like about being a caregiver is the love that you get in return, not all the time in difficult cases but you know it's there. My personal achievement is when I went to Miller-Motte to become a phlebotomist while working a full time and part time job I look back now and wonder how I made it.
