Mareike’s Host Mother Comments
On the off hand we would like to thank YFU INDIA for giving us the opportunity of hosting a child who has been a wonderful experience to be with. It has not only helped my children but also my husband and my self in creating a new life with a new member in our family”.
In Her Words
Xabina Bhaseen and her family in Jalandhar previously hosted student Sam Maaritz from Seattle, Washington, USA.
“Having another teenager at home got me quite a few raised eyebrows, but it’s never been anything but a pleasure. Sam from Seattle has turned around to be quite an eye-opener for us … I never expected or thought that the world around the globe could be so similar — the mother’s care so identical, the worries of the father, the tastes so similar.
I personally am impressed with the human relations of these kids and the orientation given to them, which is very thorough. One interesting experience I’ve had is the warmth felt between my own kids and the way they are so protective of their new brother. We are trying our best to extend his trip.”
