“We were reluctant at first to open our home to an exchange student, but we are so glad we decided to open our door! Raphael has been such a blessing to us that I consider him another member of our family. We have become such good friends that he has now visited us three summers in a row, and he may even come for a fourth! We were also able to visit him in Germany and meet his wonderful family, so the bond we have we believe could last a lifetime. My children are especially fond of Raphael, and I think at this point they would be very sad if he didn’t come and stay with us again. Whatever the future holds, our lives have been changed by having this bright, interesting, and warm young man stay in our home, and our desire is to continue to build our relationship with him and his whole family. ”
