   The Gould Family of California - Nominated by Silvana D. of Brazil 

My host family, with no doubt, deserves this award. It's not just because they are an exceptional host family (which they absolutely are) but it is because, since day one, they've shown me how much they love and care about me. They’ve shown me how important I am in their lives. And believe me, there is no better thing that being important for someone. It doesn’t really matter if it is a small or big thing, we all want to mean something for someone and I feel so grateful for having the chance to show them all my gratitude and love.

I know that isn't easy to share your life, your house, sometimes your privacy with someone who is not actual part of your family. Someone who you just met. Who knocked on your front door carrying their lives in a few suitcases. Carrying all the dreams, positive thoughts and fears, A LOT of fears! 

We can’t expect that everything will be great and perfect from the beginning. We all have challenges, we all have limitations. However, we need to give it a try! Once you give this experience a chance to work… It’s magical. We need both sides working together to make that happen. This is a two-way road. Everything that goes, comes back to you. If you give good things you will receive them back. And I can’t thank them enough for everything they have done for me!

It has been the most wonderful time of my life. I have a host family that respects me as a person and a professional, they understand if I need a time for myself, they believe in my potential, they trust my judgment and they have always made me feel loved and welcomed. I have this people by my side. I know I can count on them and they also can count on me. We have been proving that for each other.

They are the kind of family that leaves you a note under your bedroom’s door saying how thankful they are for all your work. The kind of family I can trust, share my life, my goals and my fears. And I feel like I’ve known them forever! We talk, we exchange opinions and we always try to understand the other person’s side.

This experience brings us such a joy, because we learn, ALL THE TIME. We learn tolerance, friendship, empathy. Every day I learn and teach something new. It can be a feeling, a word or a way to make things better. They constantly make sure I know how wonderful and how grateful they are for all my hard working and my love and kindness for their children. So yes, I am absolutely a member of this family and it wasn't because we had to become one, it was because we allowed ourselves to enjoy this wonderful experience and make the most of it. It was because we share love. 

That's why I believe from the bottom of my heart that this family deserves, not just this award, but all the greatest things in the whole world. 

With all my love,
