Thanks for this thread thewhitehouse, we are flying out in August with our two boys, and my Mum and Dad have taken it very badly.
Not only are they heartbroken but they think we are doing the wrong thing. My husband's parents are devastated but support us all the way. In a way the difference in support makes it even harder, as I keep thinking, why can't my parents just support our decision?
My parents visited yesterday and they didn't mention anything about Adelaide or the move the whole time. It's like they've decided it will go away if they don't think about it. They know we have booked the flights but haven't asked the date.
My Mum basically told me this was all a pipe dream, this is without knowing a single thing about where we are going or the preparations we have made, or even how hard we are finding life here right now - it's my own fault I guess as I try not to worry them so I always give them a rosy picture.
Can anyone give me advice on how to deal with this? We have 17 weeks left here and I want to be able to enjoy time with our extended family and get everything organised and look forward to the move, without this hanging unresolved over me. At the moment I just keep thinking about it and it's driving me crazy!
