“a HUGE thank you to Mrs. Brittany for taking such good care of Liana. Its always hard to bring your child anywhere and leave them in the hands of someone other than parents or family, but I see the way she cares for my daughter and Liana adores her. I truly could not be happier with her care. TY!”
