    Description

    SPANISH speaking is extra plus!

    We are looking for you who loves to:
    - share your life, thoughts, ideas, culture and experiences
    - hang out with different kind of persons
    - be part of something bigger, making a difference
    - go for walks, talk for hours, work hard and laugh

    We are a big, open-minded, down-to-earth, crazy, alternative, energetic, spontaneous, hard-working, honest and caring family that lives in an old farmhouse. We don't have much land, but we have some sheep, 3 horses and 7 dogs.

    We run our own business, having the office at home. We also run a dog training center, giving classes to people with their dogs 7 days a week, from beginners to professionals, agility and obedience.

    The family consist of grandparents Britt and Per, my husband Arne and me Christin, my 2 daughters Emelie 16 and Elsa 14, (born in Spain) Ebbe 4 and someone that stay with us since we are "foster-home/half-way home" for adults. That means an adult who has or had drugproblems or mental issues.

    Since Christin lived many years in Spain and Emelie & Elsa were born there, we speak both Swedish and Spanish at home so that the girls will keep up their mother-tongue.

    We live outside a small village in between two bigger towns. Right outside the house is a bike road and the bus passes every hour both directions. It's easy to move and go places. We are close to Denmark as well.

    You get a very good glimse of how foster home for adults works in Sweden.

    Then there are so many beautiful places to go visit! Kullaberg, Ven, Österlen etc ... Not to mention that you are in Copenhaguen with the train in 2 hours. Or jump on the plane and fly to Stockholm that will take an hour.
