But for one Aurora hearth, the Diaz family to be exact, it expands far past the comfortable reaches of their own home and almost always far past the borders of the United States.
Sara and Dario Diaz -- and eventually their only biological son Adrik, started hosting foreign exchange students around 2010. But the idea of allowing others from around the globe into their lives started much earlier, especially for Sara. The Diaz family shares its story in this week's special ANR family focus section.
