Which brings me to our great au pair Ulle from Estonia. She came to us from a family in North Carolina where she did not feel comfortable; they never cleaned their house! Ulle stayed with us for nine months and we had a great time. She fit in well with our family and we have kept in touch all these years. She has come to visit us in Kansas City and now finally we had the opportunity to come and visit her.
Of all the ten au pairs we have hosted this is the only rematch story I have to tell. I learned my lesson of interviewing and the importance of asking all the right questions and also listening to what the au pairs were saying. Going into rematch is not always a bad thing. There is a family for every au pair and an au pair for every family. One family’s unhappiness can be another family’s jackpot!
