“It was great having Yuke here for three years as we learned so much about China's culture. In fact, we were able to travel to China for two weeks at the invitation of her parents and it gave us a better understanding of who Yuke is as we learned about her family, home life and her family’s business…Yuke has brought a lot of laughter to the household and she will be missed dearly now that she is graduating.”

Both Jade and Shirley have become a part of our family – they bring us all so much joy…[Hosting] the twins has helped us to learn so much about China since our family is from South America. We speak to our daughters a lot about Colombia and Peru, but now they get to experience a different culture and language because of Shirley and Jade.”

“Zoe has become a part of our family. We especially love our family dinners when she and our daughters start talking and laughing about school and shared experiences. We truly enjoy having Zoe and learning about her culture.  It makes us all much more aware of people and respectful of their cultures as a family.”

——The Kirkham Family

“Anna has been a fun addition to the family. Her sense of humor has been enjoyed by everyone and she has fit right into during family traditions…By hosting Anna, my family has had their opinion of the people of China created by a person from China, not the media or the perception/opinions of others.”
