Hi everyone! I know everybody is as anxious as I am to find out about my host family...but we are all going to have to wait a little longer. However, I do have some news:

1) I received Visa information and applications. Once I give it everything to AFS in a couple of days, and they will return my passport with my visa in it when I arrive in New York for the 2 day pre-departure orientation.

2) I won't receive host family information until a month - 2 weeks before I leave. Rest assure that I will definitely tell EVERYONE about my family when I get one!

3) I fly into Rome on January 30th....which happens to be my birthday! I fly out of Rome on July 5th. My parents are a little disappointed that I won't be with the family on my 17th birthday...but I can't think of a better b-day present! than flying into Italy!

So that's it for now.....I'll update soon!
