You did not say how your parents are reacting to this news.
Actually, I can’t imagine any parents been delighted that their children and grandchildren are going abroad to live.

There are grandparents whose children and grandchildren live in the same town and they don’t see each other much , if at all. Nothing is good or bad ......it’s thinking that makes it so ...... Families are so very different. We have to let our children live their lives, even when they are a very important part of our lives. As my son often tells me, It’s not all about you mum!
