Thank You Rhona for your Email Today!

Hi Rochel.

I don’t know if this is your company or not, but it is the best tool on the market. In the past it has been the hardest thing to find domestic help.  With the Nanny Pages the response has been overwhelming.

I can now even find help for the odd days or evenings that I may need.

I hope the girl I hired will be happy and stay.

I am telling all my friends about The Nanny Pages.

Thank you.

Rhona Grodzinski
