“A Heart Big Enough to Span Continents” | Host Dad Jason


Jason and Jana reunited after nearly a year apart


Host dad Jason has a heart big enough to span continents! Jason and his wife Julie are the proud parents of two lovely daughters, and last year they also welcomed international exchange student Jana into their lives! Jana quickly became another daughter to Jason and when her visit was over, it was difficult to say goodbye. That’s why Jason and Jana spent the next 9 months planning her return trip to surprise Julie and the girls! Check out that special moment below, in this video Jason took upon Jana’s surprise return!
