We booked Lorraine to sit for our two daughters and two nieces when we were staying at a hotel locally and she was absolutely great. I thought she would have her hands full with the four of them in one hotel room but she was totally calm and relaxed and very professional. The girls thought she was wonderful and if we lived in the area I would want to use her everytime we went out! I can't recommend her highly enough. Thank you.
