      Can't imagine what you're going through. Our kids are luckily coming with us (7,12,17). At first 17 yr old didn't want to come but we went through with the process anyway and he is now excited about his new life in Oz (Oh said not to make an issue of it and he would come round - thankfully he was right). Hoping to move out in November but I am dreading the goodbyes (get quite tearful thinking about it!!). Best wishes to you and your family.

It will be very hard Cazzie, but I hope you find the strength to get through it and make the trip here to Adelaide. Keep trying to think of the reasons you wanted to come here in the first place as that will help your resolve. And try and make plans for the future, will the children be able to come out and see you? If not, reassure them that you will be back for a holiday in a few years time. Don't treat it as though you will never see them again because you almost certainly will. And there's always skype and phone calls and emails.

      Stay strong and best wishes.

      Can't really add anything more to Liz's well written post except to say Good Luck.
