Host Dad Michael

My host father is a great, interested father and I can’t get over how much effort he puts into running the kids’ baseball programme! He never hesitates in helping me out when I need something and has driven me to, and picked me up from, many an adventure. – Millie from the UK

Host Dad Fernando

“Fernando, you’re an amazing dad. It goes without saying that the boys adore you, from playing soccer to whittling sticks and reading books, they love every minute they get to spend with you. I love the warm spring and summer days when we can all do stoop-time and chat with our neighbors. You always make time to talk to people you care about… Let’s face it, you’re awesome! Happy Father’s Day, have a good one! – Nathalie from Belgium
