CURRENT PHOTOS !!!!!!!!!!!!

(please include at least two- one that shows face and hair well (NO hats or sunglasses) as well as one that is from the knees or waist up) -. A photo you can have that was taken recently, in good light, that shows them casual, is best.

A more serious, non smiling photo as an option is ideal, if possible.

Family photos are fine in this case. LOOKING "the part" (plain, drab, etc...will help you get hired!)

CITY and STATE where you live (or will be coming from)

AGE of Child or children

AGE of Adult (if interested)

Height (in Feet and Inches please, not just inches!!)


NOTE: IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE CHILD IN THIS AGE RANGE, send them TOGETHER with all of their info and photos in ONE email, listed as requested above, HOWEVER we cannot guarantee that siblings will both be chosen."
