Emotional reunion for childhood nanny

In 1962 Sarah and her brother Andrew had a nanny Valda for five years whilst their mother was ill and Valda proved to be their rock. What made her particularly special was that Andrew is autistic and she looked after him brilliantly, she also helped Sarah with her dyslexia and gave her a lifelong love of reading. Sarah wanted to get in touch with her and thank her for all she did for them.
