I think my hardest moment was when my host mom's mother fell in the stairs, and was in the hospital then got pneumonia and she almost died but all that time my host mom was over there to support her mom, my little host sister was crying and stuff because she wanted her mom so I kinda had to play mom to her some nights, I'd put her into bed, read stories to her, dress her in her pjs, I'd take the laundry out of the washer and dryer and either fold it or have it dry... My host mom would only come home around 3 in the morning or so then she'd be up by 7 and sometimes she was crying.

ok shame on me it's not sad compare with all your stories...
Anyway I was really sad the first week when my corrdinator said me I was gonna live with her until my host family come back. I wanted to go back so bad -__-
Then I felt better, even great until the school put me in Junior instead of senior. I was (am) really disappointed because I was homecoming rep ... I felt american for a few days.

well, whatever

my worst moment was when my host mom fell when she was ice skating with me at a rotary meeting.it was 4 days before christmas and she almost died too.
Her brain had so much blood and it was hard to drain. Butshe came back home for christmas and that night she was feeling really bad and went back to the hospital... The doctor told her if she didnt come back that night she would have die because of lack of sodium, and other stuff in her body,
she also had to be in a wheel chair for at least 3months because she had dizzy spell...
It was just an awfull time but we lived through all together and made us closer than ever!

its not about who had the most horrible story, its basically about the worst thing that happened and if you feel like there's something bad that happened even if it doesnt compare with almost losing a host mom or something it'll still be a bad time for you

But I don't really remember anything bad...
I had some harder moments, like when I was missing home, when they told me I couldnt be a senior, when I had no friends and I was going to school way too early, and I had to wait an hours all alone in the commons, that was always making me sad (it was only 3 months though), or when I was receiving e-mails with bad news..
but there's nothing terrible, I mean, it was hard to live on the moment, but now it's in the past and I really don't care anymore...

My worst moment was when I was in my first family. I felt so uncomfortable with them! During the 2 first weeks I couldn't eat anything, every times my parents were calling me I was crying. My coordinator didn't want to help me. All she did was taking me down. Saying everything was my fault. She was on my host family's side. And during that my mom in France was really sad, she lost so much weight because she was worried, and she had to take pills to sleep. I felt SO bad. And also when my coordinator told me I couldn't go to internet, and I could be on the phone only 1 hour a week, and then she took away my phone and my laptop (even tho my host family didn't have internet ...)

Fortunaly, I moved out of this family, and I have never seen my coordinator again !

Anytime I argued with my coordinator or the CHI boss or whatever she was. When I felt really uncomfortable with my first host family and my second, whenever I was stuck in my room and kinda scared to come out. I'd just stay there till the next day, without anything to eat and nervous about someone calling me down. Whenever my second host father was rude to me or asking me to do nasty chores again telling me he already started (lie).
The weekends where my host family left early so they could leave me home by myself with nothing to do all day and that I had to walk an hour under 104°F to go get some crap to eat (macdonald's almost every saturdays and sundays cause nothing else to eat whatsoever)
Or when I couldn't hang out with friends because I had to be home quickly to babysit kids that wouldn't listen and behave.
Also when I find out that my host family or coordinator is lying to me about something or when I discover that my family bought tickets for a baseball game and didn't even talk to me about it or asked if I wanted to go.
Finally whenever my host dad promised he was gonna pay me for all the chores I was doing for them (babysit, laundry, dog, dishes, sweep, pick-up for them) and that he never did.
