“It’s a certain amount of time [to serve as a caretaker], but in a lifespan it’s a blink of an eye,” Hilary shared to Huffington Post. “There’s been job opportunities I’ve passed on, and things that I said ‘I can’t,’ but really what we’re here for is our family. You can’t get this time back, and I’d look back and regret not taking care of him in this time. It’s a true honor.” Watch the video below!

FYI: Hilary is wearing a Tory Burch dress.
