I could never thank my host family enough. They took me in and made me a part of their family. I love them so dearly, I have no idea how to leave. They have done everything from helping me with homework to do my hair for prom. For all my crazy adventures I want to thank some of my friends, Brock, Dylan, my hostsisters Kayli and Ashley, Vilde, Monica and Emma especially. A friend that has helped me this entire year is Shayla – thank you so much for accepting me for who I am, and introducing me to America. I also want to thank all the young women leaders in church who always cares about everyone. Most of all I want to thank everyone who helped me along the way, everyone who made me feel welcome and appreciated. There are so many names I could list but I don’t want to write a two page essay. Thank you for letting me take a place in your life, I will always be grateful. I love you all.
