This picture was taken not long after moving in with my host family in Macedonia. I don't have the words to describe how wonderful and loving this family was to me. I really won the host family lottery. Having them in my life was a life-changing experience. They had 6 girls and 1 boy and they took me in and treated me like another daughter, another member of their family. I can only hope and aspire to be as kind, selfless, and accepting as they are.
