Why or why not?

if interested would you host in the next one year or so?

would you still do it if it was all volunteer (student has his/her own insurance and their own spending money)?

I would, if we lived in a house. I think that would be a valuable experience for our DD.

Nope. That would not work with our lifestyle and personalities, on so many levels.

Nope, no room and I don't really want to be responsible for someone else's child.

I want to once the little ones are older. My aunt hosted a bunch throughout the years. Mostly Japanese students/chaperones. As a teen I went along and helped with their classes and trips. :-)

There are actually more female than male. What if it was a female?

I would consider it when my girls are a little older, and only a girl while they were living with me still. When they move out, I'd consider any gender.
