Hosting kids from around the world has changed our family as well as each family member. I tell other families thinking about hosting how my kids are different than their friends in regards to how they accept others and their opinions. I think having someone from another country, culture, way of life become part of our family for 10 months taught them that. The more times we hosted the more we learned to adapt and accept them for who you they are.
We have also gained a greater appreciation for the area we live in as we were able to see it through their eyes. Each one saw and loved different things about our neighborhood, region and state.
It has been the most exciting and enriching experience. We now have family that extends across the globe. We love it!!!
