welcoming an exchange son or daughter to your family
A home for 40 exchange students
Well, my story starts many years ago, to be exact around 1993. I had always been interested in finding out more about my German roots on my Mother’s side of the family...
I love you with all my heart!
Thank you Dads for making me appreciate everything and everybody in this big world as well as making myself, me.
“We don’t get to choose our families…” This is only partially true.
Since we don’t have any natural children, I didn’t think I’d ever be a ‘dad.’
Our exchange daughter Alicja was very easy going and social
Our eldest daughter Natasha read an article about hosting with YFU in the local newspaper. After requesting more information all family members were excited to welcome an exchange student into our home.
I have learned a lot of Zuza's stay in our family
The idea of going on a YFU exchange program came to me because my family and I have hosted polish exchange student Zuza this year.
The exchange student will be part of your life forever!
Hosting a YFU exchange student is a love experience. You have to learn to love a new child. Surprisingly, it’s easy! And they will love you back.
