My name is Teri. My husband, Randy and I live in Oregon, which is in the northwest part of the USA. We have a grown daughter (Amber) and she has has given us three young grandsons (ages 10, 9, and 7). We love animals and have 3 dogs, 4 cats, 7 peacocks, 2 ducks, 2 turkeys and about 35 chickens!
In 2012, we became "Host Parents" to international exchange students. Each school year, we host two students. We think of them as our children. So far, we have only hosted girls. Our daughters from around the world are: Monica from China, Samantha "Sam" from Mexico, Mathurada "Palm" from Thailand, Linh from Vietnam, Julia from Brazil and Andrea "Andy" from Taiwan. Melinda "Lindy" from Switzerland (She was born in Germany and is German/Dutch descent, but lives in Switzerland) and Benya "Bea" from Thailand. In August 2016, we welcomed our two newest daughters; Anna from Germany and Jenny from South Korea. Being a Host Parent has really been a blessing. It gives us the opportunity to experience many different cultures without leaving our home.
What kind of postcards do I like? Here are some ideas of the types of cards that I like the most:
-> Cute pictures of Cats, Dogs, or other cute animals...I
prefer the soft, furry type...it can be a photo, a
drawing or cartoon, it does not matter. :)
-> Angels! I love angels...paintings, drawings, statues,
cartoon,etc. I love them all.
-> Inspirational cards (can be Christian scripture, famous
sayings, or other inspirational words).
-> Recipes - I love trying different foods, so a recipe from your
country would be great!
-> Scenes from your city or country, like favorite tourist
spots (nature scenes, cities, famous building, etc).
-> A Famous Person from your country. Please tell me who
the person is and what they are famous for. :)
-> Holiday cards from your country. These are so much fun! I love
holiday cards! :)
...If you do not have any of these, then send me something you would like to receive! I share my cards with my family, so, please, send cards that are appropriate for all ages (no nudity).
What should you write?
-> Tell me about yourself! I would love to hear about you
and your family. How old are you? Are you married? Do you have
children (grandchildren), pets?
-> Your hobbies? Do you like to paint? Draw? Knit? Collect coins?
-> Your favorite quote or scripture?
-> Your favorite book, author or movie?
-> I also love recipes! And I enjoy cooking all different
types of food. So, if you have a favorite recipe you
would like to share with me, that would be great.
I will register your card as soon as I receive it. Please make sure to write the Postcard ID on the card!
Thank you and Happy Postcrossing! :) Teri
