At 5.15am on Wednesday morning, our 10 host families said farewell to their “adopted” Japanese exchange students, who have spent the last 13 days with them. It is always a time of mixed emotions, with the Japanese students eager to return home to their families, while also finding it hard to say goodbye to their newly adopted families. Lifelong memories and relationships have been established. Thank you so much to the host families who opened their homes to welcome a stranger who left as a member of the family.
