2nd Place - The Clark Family
’Hosting students has given my children new big sisters! They call them sisters, treat them sisters and argue with them like sisters! My children came into my life through foster care and hosting has given them a world view and goals and ambitions of their own to do exchanges! They have learnt new languages, games and customs that they otherwise wouldn't have! It's opened their eyes to the world!’
3rd Place - The Parker Family
"The exchange program has provided unexpected experience for our only son (Charlie, aged 5) and exchange daughter (Anne, aged 15). Despite the age difference we watched an amazing relationship develop from a novelty, to close friends, to a lifelong brother/sister connection. There is an amazing intimacy and a familiarity that Charlie and Anne share that has made an indelible mark and sense of connection that had previously been missing."
Congratulations to our winners and thank you to all of our fantastic host families who sent in entries.
