10 years ago this coming July, we hosted a foreign exchange student from Slovenia. It happened actually by accident. My sister was going to host her but realized she couldn't and asked me and the hubby to take her. I (of course) jumped at the chance. We had never done this before but thought we'd give it a shot. Soooo happy we did. I love her as if she was my own. The hubby? He ADORES her:) She's truly an amazing girl. She graduated top of her class here in AZ and as for her swimming? No one could catch her:)
She went on to receive a full ride scholarship to BU where she broke records and worked hard toward her dream of becoming a doctor,
Just like her parents. They are both doctors in Slovenia. The sweetest people you could ever meet. THEY are the reason she's so amazing:)
She came to us 10 years ago with hopes and dreams of becoming a doctor, and on this past Friday...She DID.
Meet Dr. Lidija Breznikar McGrath:)
Liddy, you are truly amazing and I couldn't be prouder of you. You will make your mark in this world with your ridiculous smarts and absolutely wonderful heart:) Oregon Health and Science University is lucky to have you:)
