A year and a half of crazy & touching stories as The Extra Daughter

My team and I have done some crazy things but also made wonderful relationships


In the last year and a half since The Extra Daughter was founded, we have done some unusual (to say the least) tasks and formed some strong bonds with our clients. Read on:



We have:

Plunged a toilet

Found a client who had fallen on the kitchen floor

Climbed half way in a grocery store freezer to get the last pint of peanut butter brickle ice cream

Make appointments for a COVID vaccine and driven to many appointments for the vaccine

Caught a medication administration mistake

Cleaned up after a cat who had a hairball

Given fashion advice at Macy's

Heard that a client's father killed an armed robber when she was young after being told she had a boring life

Sat in countless waiting rooms, or since COVID the our car in the parking lot

Helped make major purchases including: A computer, a kitchen set and eye glasses.

Have been told that they knew their husband cheated on them but stayed because of the children

Heard beautiful enduring love stories and of grief of the loss of a spouse

Spent ten minutes to buy three oranges

Connected to a client's Wi-Fi after she didn't know she was only using cellular data

Heard stories of brilliant children and grandchildren

Heard stories of greedy, rude children and grandchildren

Hooked up a new phone/answering machine

Heard stories (from more than one client) of family members with addiction problems that deeply affected everyone

Opened a safe

Purchased liquor

Received a call from a client that her mother died - yes you read that right. Mom was 94.

Told by the client who lost her mother that she reached out to me because no one else would be as compassionate.

Have been told that everyone in their family hates them

Been named an emergency contact because no relative lives close

Been given hugs

Been told that they are so glad to have met us

Been told that we are loved


If you have a flexible schedule and are compassionate you may have what it takes to be an Extra Daughter or Son. Contact Julie at extradaughterakron@gmail.com
