Incredible

So I had the opportunity this weekend to host a friend's parents on their first trip to America. They were from Taiwan, and spoke but very little English. As we took them around our beautiful state, watched them touch snow for the first time, laughed with them, and listened to their incredible stories, I just had an overwhelming sense of gratitude that I am able to speak this amazing language. How many doors have been opened and experiences had simply because of this ability.

I am so happy for your children, whom I love so much, that they too will have the ability to converse with and learn from such an expanded number of people. Language is a gift, and I just want to thank you for giving it to your child. Thank you for supporting them and putting them in this program. They have all come so far. And it is a beautiful thing.
