Jessia from Michigan

I am taking care of my older sister Anne. She is the oldest of my siblings and I am the youngest. Throughout our childhood she spent so much time and energy to take care of me and my brothers and sisters. I am glad I am able to help her at this point in our lives. I know she is grateful for my help and I am grateful to do it. She has many ailments and I am there to help her with them. Our families live together. Throughout my life I have held many professional positions. I never thought I would use this one to help my family! This is such a joy to do.
