We used Our Loving Arms and had a sitter named Decyre (pronounced Deseree) she was great! The kids loved her! We used her twice on our vacation in St Pete and will definitely use their services again (hopefully her!) if we vacation here again next year!

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that Sarah was amazing with our baby this week. She made our visit to Sarasota so comfortable and relaxing which is hard to do with an infant in tow. Thank you so very much. We look forward to working with you again when we return.

Thank you so much for sending Alisa to care for our three children on Holmes Beach this week. We had a great vacation and is was wonderful to be able to leave the two little ones in great care to spend some one-on-one care with our older child. We'll look you up if we ever return to the Bradenton/Sarasota area. Best Wishes.

Last week you sent me two great women, Kathryn and Angela who helped care for Katherine while I was at a conference in Sarasota. They were professional and responsive to all of my questions, concerns and needs. The first day was rough for me since Katherine had never been with a babysitter. Kathryn helped me get through the process and gave me a few tips to help with the transition. Both Angela and Kathryn sent me text updates with fun pictures which helped to reassure me that all was well. Kathryn even brought her a little toy to keep her busy. Katherine was quite please with the new addition to her collection.
Even though it was a last minute assignment you were prompt and kept me abreast of the changes.
You have a great service which allowed me to both attend the conference and have wonderful people caring for my child.
Please let both women know how invaluable they were to me. I am grateful.

Nicole D. was so great! Our boys (4 and 1.5) really liked her. She made our adults-only night that much more enjoyable knowing our kids were in good hands. Casey was also great to work with - such an easy process. We will definitely use this service and Nicole on our next visit!!!

What a blessing Our Loving Arms is to my family. Casey is amazing and even while making a birthday cake for her own son, she took the time to get my family a last minute sitter. Our daughter LOVED her and still asks when she can come back and play. Thank you Casey for making it easy and stress-less.

Roseanne was fantastic! Thank you SO much for the last minute help and wonderfully attentive nanny. Jax was so happy when I got home from work, it's obvious he was in great hands!

By the way, I have to say Joyce is FABULOUS with our children. Her bubbly personality is a breath of fresh air every time she enters our home. She not only makes my children feel great, but also my husband and I. It's a great feeling knowing we can leave our children in such capable hands while we enjoy a night out. Our daughter has been asking for "Ms. Joyce" to come over in the evenings to play and read to her. I cannot say enough good things about Joyce. She really has been a blessing to my family. Thanks, Casey!

Hi Casey -- We've returned from vacation. I wanted to follow up with you to let you know how happy we were with Lou M. She was fantastic. First of all, she persevered in finding us after a mix up with hotels. Then when we she made it to us she started as soon as she walked in the room. She had her suitcase of toys - and immediately started interacting with the boys -- we were worried about leaving them but left the hotel at ease after meeting Lou. The boys barely noticed we left -- normally unheard of. We just thought she was great and wanted to pass that on.

Thank you so much for providing sitters for us so last minute during our get away from the storm at the Ritz Carlton last weekend. Both sitters were great with the kids and it was nice to be able to have an adult dinner to relieve the stress of the storm.

To Casey and Our Loving Arms Staff -
Your crew did a great job with all 50+ kids and they were a hard group to corral! Thank you so much and I have kept your information for future groups and will make sure my fellow event managers recommend you.

Hi Casey, Thank you for providing such great baby sitters for Rebecca and Clint's wedding last Saturday night. They were wonderful and a huge hit with the kids AND the parents. In fact, the bride's mom stated that her daughter said everything was exactly what she wished for at her wedding. Have a wonderful rest of the spring!

We recently vacationed on Siesta Key and found ourselves in new territory - in need of a sitter! We had always taken my mother-in-law but her health would not allow her to travel. I panicked and considered having no date night while on our trip. Our Loving Arms was recommended by our condo company and I called and spoke to Casey - what a relief! She put me right at ease. On the big night Victoria was our sitter - what an angel! They even did crafts! Our Loving Arms went above and beyond any expectation I could have had. I highly recommend them.

Hi Casey, Thank you so much for matching us with Susan. Hiring her four our household needs is the best thing we have ever done. She is a god send to our family. From housekeeping and caring for the pets, she has gone above my expectations time and time again. I will be sure to pass on your name to my friends.
-Cindy M, Housekeeping Service
I have been meaning to email a big thank you for helping us in Florida a couple of weekends ago! I had been so worried about leaving "N" for weeks -- especially since we had to leave him with someone who wasn't family -- and honestly, you put my mind at ease as soon as you walked into our room. I didn't worry about him at all while we were gone. Okay, maybe a little (just because he was still so tiny and wouldn't take a bottle well), but those worries were quickly alleviated by your nice text messages! :)I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your wonderful care.

We recently moved into our new home and just didn't want to have to bother with cleaning our rental. So we decided to hire a housekeeper through Our Loving Arms. We gave them virtually no notice, literally
2 hours. Alexis showed up, had a great spirit about her and went about cleaning as if she'd been in our home many times. We were thrilled with how detailed and thorough she was, evening cleaning the tops of the kitchen cabinets. I would highly recommend Our Loving Arms and their cleaning staff!

Thanks so much for arranging to have Linda come help us out last week - she was wonderful! The girls had a blast, and we felt very comfortable leaving them in her care - not only that they would be safe, but that they would have fun. Our three-year old loved the projects they did together, and this morning, when we mentioned how nice it was to be home, she said, "Yeah, but there's no Linda here." Thank you again, and we will be in touch next year for our trip to Sarasota!

Hiring Andrea was such a blessing to me as a new mommy! Thank you Casey, for easing my fears of leaving my new baby with a non-family member! Your patience, diligence and kindness are so appreciated.
