To make a long story short, a 12-year old girl has nowhere to go, and I’ve volunteered to help care for her while her father gets back on his feet. Being 26 myself, with no kids, I have no experience in the area of raising a child, but I have every intention to make sure she gets the proper care, a stable and safe home life, and have fun. I’ll be responsible for her education, and I would love to teach her how to cook, which I hear she’s interested in.
I’m not expecting it to be an easy undertaking, but I do expect to do a good job. I just hope I don’t have to be chasing off any boys. I’m at the age where I can actually catch them when they go running off. :)
