What an emotional thread!

Thankfully we have not had these issues though what I struggle with is although my family totally support what we are doing I know they obviously miss us and my problem is the fact that I have choosen to move here and have prevented them from seeing their grandkids/nephews/cousins/great grandkids.

We cannot afford to go back there anytime soon as we are still building a life here but they too cannot particularly afford to come here they too have their lives to lead and for them to come here is an extra - massive - expense - and is our fault. This is what I struggle with and although we still have great contact and have had and are expecting more visitors the guilt of the move lives with you and I think will always live with you and trouble you - I dont know time will tell?
