“We proposed to our au pair”

March 28, 2013

From host mom Lindsay Wallin

We just finished the matching process to select our 5th au pair! We’ve learned over the years that the au pair matching process is much like a courtship and while we are looking for all the qualities and strengths we need or want, we know that the the au pair candidates are also trying to find the ideal family to spend their au pair year with. Once we’ve decided on our final candidate we want to make sure she feels special and that it is just as much her choice to accept our offer. This year we were deciding between two great candidates and after a few long Skype sessions, we all agreed on Romi.


We decided it would be fun to “propose” to her! We sent this photo with the subject line: “we have just one more question…” And we were delighted to get a very quick response with this photo which assured us that she is definitely “the one”. While we are sad to be saying goodbye to our current au pair who will have been with us for two years when she leaves in June, we are equally excited to be welcoming our next great Cultural Care au pair!
