    Hi everyone,
    I am a swiss citizen living in the southern part of Switzerland, close half hour from the italian border.
    I am 52 years old , I have 4 children , 3 aged 22 years old ( yes, they are triplets) and one girl 28 years old which I adopted from Thailand.
    running business(es) and working with community services, I manage to fill my time.
    I work as an indipendent counselor and i ' ve been also involved in volounteer work in South East Asia , India, Nepal and Palestine.
    The circle of life gave me the opportunity to spend many years in this beautiful house with my children.
    Now that they are on their way I would like to became a foster family , I am actually doing all the papers and therefore I will need to refresh part of the house to welcome my new project.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I love to combine symbiotic exchange of resources with making new friends from all over, building networks, blessing and being blessed by those I'm privileged to know.
