"Hosting exchange students gave me and my partner the opportunity
to experience the joys and the challenges of being a parent - experiences
we had long assumed we'd never have. Parenting is sometimes a tough
job, but it results in a new depth of skill and knowledge and, of course,
lifelong memories. We've since met the parents of all of the students
we've hosted, and it was fun to compare notes on "our" children."
