ON RECHERCHE UNE FAMILLE D’ADOPTION (TEMPORAIRE) POUR UN JEUNE HOMME FRANÇAIS. Bonsoir, mon amie Lois (aka Loeeeez) cherche une famille d’adoption — temporaire!— pour un jeune homme français (14 ans), Jack, qui parle anglais et a déjà passé du temps aux Etats-Unis. Ce serait pour quelques semaines ou un mois cet été. Lois connait parfaitement les parents de Jack: excellente famille! Si cela vous intéresse ou si vous connaissez une famille que cela intéresserait, SVP, contactez directement Lois (e-dresse ci-dessous). I’m writing in the hopes that you, or someone you know, can be of some help. I have very good friends in Paris who have three sons. A few years ago the oldest, Charles, stayed with us for a month in the summer to practice use and perfect his English - something that his parents know is very important. Now their youngest son, age 14, is looking for a family to stay with for a few weeks or a month this summer. An exchange— your child for their son- during that time would be interesting as well. Jack does speak English as he has spent some summers at a camp in Pittsburgh while staying with cousins. Isabelle and Marc Moati, the parents, are very warm and welcoming ( and speak English). He is an engineer and she is an ophthalmologist. They have a large apartment near the Bois de Vincennes and a summer home in the south of France. So, if you know of a family who’d be interested, or know of someone who might be, please let me know. Looking forward to hearing from you, Lois Hirsch, loisplfd@yahoo.com

Bonne lecture!

Suzanne
