Michigan Host Mom Says Goodbye to a Great Year

French teen fits right in

It’s hard to believe the school year is over already. This was our first time hosting, and our family had so much fun with Sabrina from France. From apple picking, a day at the zoo, a weekend trip to Mackinac Island, Lake Michigan, and cheerleading in the fall, to Orlando for spring break (Universal Studios and Epcot), then prom, graduation, and finally a weekend trip to Chicago, we had a blast! 

Sabrina fit right in with our family. It was so hard to say goodbye, and she is now back home safely in France, but we know we will see her again someday. Thank you for such a great experience! ❤
