Dear Gehard and Gabi
We are unable to send him to the airport in Kuala Lumpur because tonight we will leave for Kuala Terengganu and stay a few days there. I am sorry for not being able to see him off into the plane personally.
Stuart's host mother will take care of him until flying off to Europe.
I want to say thank you for letting us having Maxi a year as our host son. Throughout the year, it's not always pleasant moments, sometimes quite hard either for Maxi or us, we had tears, anger, refusal; but we also had many laughter, sincere sharing moments and heart-touching events.
Although there are up and down times, as a conclusion, we are glad Maxi took the challenges, conquered his sorrow and despair, remained with us until the end of exchange year.
We are sorry for only able to give him limited chances of traveling, delicious restaurant treats, exploring and experiencing. We also want to apologize for those tough times given to him.
My youngest son said, he already starts to miss Maxi soon after we left Stuart's house just now.
I told Maxi there is a Chinese saying:
It's easier to say good bye than meeting again. But there is always hope, we shall meet again, some other time.
Last but not least, we wish Maxi success in his future endeavor, may sunshine always falls on him.
Maxi's host mum, host papa and brothers.
