It is now October and those in Welcome Families are either moving to a permanent one or are staying with the WF. I am thankful we weren't a welcome family and are a permanent one instead. Sure, we are 7 years apart in age, but we are getting along VERY well--playing Wii, shopping, being funny together, etc. She is very polite, respectful,independent,studious,etc. Sure there will be ups and miscommunications throughout the year and yes every student we had has been different, but Giulia is great in her own unique way.
I am looking forward to the rest of our year together, travelling together and taking her places, going shopping for things I don't need with her LOL,etc.
