As part of the business trip to the USA we sent Stanley to the Jackson/Lakewood area and he stayed with Mia's family. Here is review of his 2 months stay.
Mia was kind enough to accept my request even though I applied as a boy. She helped me with every little information I needed before flying to the states and she even prepared some nice gifts for my stay. From the very beginning Mia and her 2 teenage kids made me feel as part of their family by explaining and showing me everything in the house and area around. She has offered me to use any food in the house for small weekly fee which was the best decision ever since her cooking is just exceptional. During the stay her whole family tried to help me with everything they could, introducing me to their friends, driving me to groceries and shopping malls, showing me cities and areas arounds and much more. Mia, her kids and dogs certainly have a lot of experience with hosting guests and exchange students as they are able to create exceptional and memorable experience. Their house is clean and loving with 2 cute dogs, area is quite with shopping malls, groceries stores and gym just around the corner.
I left their house after two months in sadness as such a great experience came to end so quickly. I did make extended family in the states and I cannot wait to see them all again either in states or in Europe. I recommend this family and house to anyone who will treat it as their own.
