    While I agree that finding someone who's able to complete more than one contract with an employer is a good sign, I also wouldn't automatically reject a helper just because she was terminated. In fact my current helper was unlucky in her previous (local Chinese) employer who treated her v poorly and whom she had a terrible working relationship with. There are some local families who demand quite unreasonable things from their helpers and at the same time seem to grudge their presence.

    Anyway, to cut a long story short, we were lucky enough to connect with this helper (as she is friends with my sister's helper from the same church) and we took a chance with her (in that we had no references to check altho she did help out my sister part-time when their maid was off) and it has worked out quite well for us. She is very good with our baby and he adores her.
