Cooking. Cleaning. Driving. Advising. Comforting. Cheering. Protecting. Host moms do a lot! We have the deepest admiration and appreciation for all our awesome host moms who love and care for their exchange students as their own. For all that you do, host moms, our hats are off to you! This year, we invited students to share why their host moms are special. Grab the Kleenex and read on. . .
My hostmom is very special to me because she is always there for me, treats me like her own daughter and tries her best to make a wonderful time possible! I am very grateful that she let me stay with her for a whole year without even knowing me!

I'll be forever grateful for having my host mom in my life! She is special because she is not just an "host-mom", we are like best friends. I can come to her with questions, problems, and concerns. Since the beginning she made me feel part of the family and one she is completely part of mine!
She is special because she is funny, she always takes care of me, and she helps me in everything. I know that I can always count on her. So happy mother's day to her because she is my second mom.

My host mom is an example for me. She is very lovely. She is the greatest person here in USA.
It is so fun to hang out with Amber because we always find something to talk about. While she cooks meals with meat for everyone in the family she cooks vegetarian options for me and I am so thankful for that! Even though she is working a lot she always finds time to hang out with me and/or Abrea my host sister. Thank you Amber for being such a wonderful host mum!

My Host mum is special to me because she became my second mother when she comforted me when I missed my home, when she made me laugh when I needed it and when she made me feel accepted and secure in a country miles away from the people I love the most. Now you are one of them.
My host mom is the most amazing, caring and funniest person in the world. She just makes me feel at home, we always have so much fun together, and she definitely made my experience in the United States something I would never forget. Happy Mother’s Day!!
