“In 2011, at the request of my daughter, we hosted an exchange student from France for a month. Alice quickly became fast friends with my daughters, and they enjoyed the month exploring the local area. They enjoyed each other so much that Alice asked to come back the following year. After years of being invited, one of my daughters is finally going to spend this Christmas in France with Alice and her family. The month we hosted Alice did so many things for our family. Our kids got a taste of another culture, they made a life-long friend, and their perspective of the world grew wider.”
