It’s time to say goodbye

Ophelia’s Diary.

Tomorrow is time to say goodbye and move forward. I am going to be an Au Pair in Las Vegas, not  in Philadelphia anymore. I am really excited about my new life in Las Vegas but in the meantime I feel so sad I have to say goodbye to everyone here.

Au Pair Ophelia life

First I will miss my host family so much, especially Theo. He made my year. He is always so funny and cute, I will for sure miss him a lot. Good thing is my host family still have help after I leave.

Then I will miss all my friends here so much. I have all these wonderful Au Pair friends from Go Au Pair. We did lots of volunteer work together. I really hope their new project Walk Now Autism Speaks works well.

Specially my Local Area Representative (LAR) Polina, I will miss her so much. She really helped me a lot with my blog and my life here. She is just like an angel to me. I will come back to visit everyone here in the future.

There will be for a few days you can not hear from me. Because before I start to work with my new host family in Las Vegas I will take one week’s vacation first. After everything is settled down in Las Vegas for me, I will come back and share more of my Au Pair stories with you!

Goodbye Philadelphia

Goodbye, I will miss all of you so much!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Ophelia’s Diary.

As now I am an Au Pair in America, this is the first Mother’s Day I can’t spend together with my mom in China. I miss my mom so much during this special time and I am sure she misses me a lot too.

Even though I am far away from her still I wish my dear mom have a great Mother’s Day. To make my mom happy, I made her some cute pictures. I keep updating my Au Pair stories to mom every week. She knows I have a great Au Pair life here and she is very happy for me.

I am far from my mom but I am not alone at all. I still have host mom, host grandmothers here. They are all my family. My host child Theo is only less than one and a half years old, but he knows Mother’s Day! He is picking up a flower for his mom!

During this special time, I want to give thanks and hugs to my LAR Polina too. She is more like a mom for us. She cares everything about us, just like caring about her own daughters. Thank you Polina. We love you! Happy Mother’s Day!

Then I helped several ladies.When I heard they called out, “ Ophelia, come here! I need your help! “ I felt so warm inside. Needed by others is the best feeling forever. I would like to try my best help others. I also made friends with two ladies. They were so kind to me. Please watch the movie.

At the end of volunteering, I decided to make a hat for myself. These two ladies helped my with my hat.
