I’m writing this letter to you guys, my amazing American family, because I felt you really deserve a very big, special and meaningful THANK YOU! Before I came here, I considered you just as my host family, because that’s what you were supposed to do.
Well, you are not just hosting me (which is great itself), you are helping me whenever I need to, you are treating me as one of your real daughters! I have never felt homesick because of you, I am happy, I feel loved. You are not a host family for me, you are my family.
Every time I talk about you I realize how blessed I am to have you in my life now and forever. I have two families which I love and who loves me. Four parents, three sisters and many relatives, isn’t it amazing?
It’s amazing how I lived for seventeen years with a family but then I got on a plane and started the trip that is changing my life forever. That will give me the chance to spread my wings, ending with carrying so many memories and so much love that could fill the entire world — my little world at least.
I can’t thank you enough for everything you do for me. I really appreciate it and thank you for being you, the family I love and care about.
