Last week, I wrote for Wanderlust and Lipstick about moving abroad as a couple and how it isn’t as easy as people think just because you have a partner in tow. This week on W&L, I take a look at moving abroad as a family. In my experience, it has been a good one, one of the better decisions I’ve made.
The windshield wipers were on. I remember that detail. The doctor had just given me the news I already knew since nausea and complete exhaustion weren’t my M.O. In the last month, I had gone over this so many times: if I was pregnant we would stay, if I wasn’t we would go. So what was the problem? We were staying. I mean, moving abroad with a family? That’s crazy, right?
Having children is scary and exciting all on its own without adding another life-changing factor into the arena like for example, oh gee, I don’t know, moving overseas maybe. You may feel like you have to check living abroad off the bucket list once you have children, but what if you didn’t?
