“When we agreed to be a host family in CCI Greenheart's foreign exchange student program, we really didn't know what to expect. It has been one of most rewarding experiences of our lives. My wife and I ended up gaining a son and our daughters gained a brother. Mads is a new family member who will be part of our family for years to come.” – Mike, a CCI Greenheart host dad in Ilinois
