My folks are arriving in Adelaide from the UK on the 2nd of June, 2010. (finally after 2 years). They come over on a parent contiributory visa. They cant sell their house in the UK but have managed to rent it out. My mate from Adelaide is off to Uk for a holiday as they arrive and has offered her house for them to stay in for 3 weeks, how lucky. I have now built a granny flat they will move into. When when they finally sell their UK home, in hopefully a years time, they will rent here in Adelaide (hopefully in a rental property I will invest in)
They have gone through the mill to get here, jumped hurdles you couldnt imagine and are starting over at a late stage in their life. I have juggled things around and re-organised my family life to help.
My message to all of you who are humming and hawing about making the move - I say go for it:
"You are better regretting something you did do than regetting something you didnt do"
Good Luck and lets hear from anyone else who has used determation to make the move - lets motivate those who are hovering on the edge.
