When I was first asked to host a student, I had a 1 year old developmentally delayed and an 8 year old, I said, "No", my hands were already full! Well to make a long story short, my husband and 8 year old, wanted to do it. So we welcomed 18 year old Alberto into our home for the month of July. It was an amazing experience, Alberto was such a great help taking the baby when I walked in the door to prepare dinner. He also helped set the table and cook! He helped my husband get the chores done and so on the weekends we could spend quality family time together showing Alberto the life style of an American family. We went on picnics, to the beach and the county fair. I'll never forget the excitement of Alberto watching the demolition derby! It was an awesome time and we really enjoyed hosting Alberto. Over the next 15 years, we hosted 18 students!
