Mother’s Day is celebrated each year in the U.S. on the second Sunday in May. This year that is May 11. It is always a nice gesture to do something for your host mom. You could help the children make a surprise for her or give her a card yourself. Any gesture is appreciated. Don’t forget to send a special message to your own mom back home. Without her love and support, you wouldn’t be here today. 🙂
