I am a single mother of 2 girls...ages 12 & 16...I am a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner by profession & have much experience. I am looking to live & work in South America...preferably Peru. My only need is a school for my girls...& hopefully the possibility of my 16 year old daughter playing basketball as she is quite gifted as an athlete...especially basketball. I am willing to do any work that is needed...especially as a nurse.Please e-mail me at if you have any information that may help me as we begin our search.
