My family gained citizenship here in New Hampshire when I was seven years old. I have grown up in a Korean household where my parents have a dry cleaning business. When I was a teenager, I decided to go back to South Korea and that’s where I met my husband. We have three beautiful children together. Two were born here in NH and one was born back in Korea. We decided to move back to NH and we applied for the childcare subsidy. Both my husband and I have college degrees and are actively looking for a new career. When we applied we were only allotted $75 per week for childcare for three kids under the age of five. Childcare costs at least $400 per week and the subsidy wasn’t enough to cover the time it would take for us to look for jobs as the positions we would need to be holding are mostly in Boston. I believe we need to change the way childcare is offered to families.
