Goodbye, Layla!


Layla was with us for less than two weeks; we all really adored her and she just fit right into our family. She left earlier this week for the next step of her program, in Washington, D.C.; next week, she'll fly back home to Najaf, Iraq.

We all felt sad seeing her off, and I do hope she has packed some more confidence and determination to reach her goals into her suitcase.
A sweet and very heartfelt card from our exchange student, Layla

I'm thankful for having had this opportunity, and I look forward to hosting more students from near and far, in the future.
