An Exchange Student's New Experiences Shows you the Beauty of where you are
Philip came to us with much enthusiasm, thirst for knowledge and his own beautiful, culturally rich life. He merged into our family and became one of our kids. Each week there were new experiences for him, stretching his viewpoint and what "normal" is for him. What we live with is so "normal" that we often don't even question or completely appreciate the value in our surroundings. Having Philip in our home allowed us to see our home, community, and country from a different point of view. We all want a community, support, love, drive for self improvement, struggles, and fun. All along the way the whole family worked on communication - because that is hard, even in your first language!
