The Wiersma Family (Wisconsin) and Katie from New Zealand
I've come to realize over the past months that I will never feel completely at home ever again, because a very large part of my heart will always be elsewhere. I’ve been in Waupun, Wisconsin for nearly 8 months and can already tell that the people I’ve met will forever be a part of me. I’ve experienced so many amazing things, places and foods as well as made tons of memories that I will definitely never forget. The people that I've come to know so well have taught me more than I could have imagined. Even though we come from different countries with completely different cultures, it feels like I've known them my whole life. Yes we are different in unique ways but I feel that thats what makes us the same. We are all different, but they're the same kind of different as me.
The past 8 months flew by and I am definitely not ready for this amazing experience to be over. As much as I wish I could pause time I am so excited for what’s in store for my last crazy months in the United States. Everyday continues to get better and I’m always learning more about myself. I am so thankful for this amazing opportunity and blessed to be placed in such an extraordinary community.
