French Dad Seeks Temporary U.S. Family For His Diabetic Surfer Son


By: Patrick Totty

My son Nathan is a 17-year-old diabetic surfer. We live in France. I’m planning to send him one month this summer to surfing places in the U.S., either on the East Coast or California.

I’d like him to stay with a family where the kid is a surfer too, and of course, diabetic. The kid could come to France the following year. Do you know any families living with a diabetic teenage son who is a surfer that I could contact for an exchange?

Thanks a lot for your help.
