This post is a little more near and dear to my heart!  I first met Lucas when he came to the US as part of the exchange program through our local Rotary Club.  He is an amazing, wonderful, fun and smart kid that we got to know very well.  The reason for that is because we were the 2nd of three host families that Lucas stayed with during his time here.  This was our first venture hosting an exchange student and I think we were blessed to have such a wonderful kid!  My son immediately bonded with Lucas (as did my husband and I) and overall, it was an amazing experience that we will never forget.  I have the deepest empathy and respect for his mother, who must be missing her son so much, every day.  We have worked hard to try and help Lucas to experience many exciting things while he was here.  One of the best parts of his stay with us was the fact that he was with us during the Christmas holiday. It was so wonderful to include him in our holiday dinner, share our family traditions with him and to have recorded so many wonderful memories that we will treasure forever.

It saddens me that the past year went by so quickly and now, the time has come for him to return home.  However, through this past year we have gained a wonderful new friend and created some incredible family memories. We are very blessed to have had this experience and to know Lucas.  I’m also happy that I was able to provide some senior pictures for him, prior to his departure.  I look forward to maintaining communications with him going forward and hearing about all of  his exciting adventures as he moves forward with his life!  Thank you for all the fun and joy you brought to our family, Lucas…we will miss you!
