It was so nice having a daughter! I've never had my own biological children so this experience allowed me to experience motherhood. I couldn't have had a better experience.

This was our first time to host an exchange student and the experience was incredible! We were so excited to get the opportunity to host. And it did not disappoint! We enjoyed building the relationship with Lena and watching her grow throughout the year.
