home is where the heart is....what if your heart cant decide? :)~

Ok so I live in va currently. I was here when I got prego , and moved to Fla for 2 1/2 yrs, then came back. No hubs, son's father not around. My mom lives in kenya, rest of the fam in fla and ga. I swore I was here for good, but after a recent visit I am sooooo torn.
Advice anyone?
pros of fla - fam. cheaper cons "down south thinking" (my son is mixed)
pros of va - 1 close friend/2nd mom type, son is in a good school cons expensive as hell, all alone feeling

  • I think you should move where you can afford. And we do live in the 21st century... tell people to get over it if they have a prob with your son being mixed! Do what is going to be easiest on you and your son. I would love to live near my family, but my husband couldn't find a job there so we're living 12 hours away from them in FL near his family. i'll be prayin for you hon! i know it's a hard decision... i would rather live near my family (if their supportive) :)

  • I would move where I could afford to live, we live in florida and are looking to move out of state because the property taxes and insurance is way to high an it does not look like it is gonna get any better anytime soon. As far as your son being mixed if the people here in florida don't like to damn bad he has the right to live where he wants and so do you. who are they to judge you or your son, they have no right to judge.

    in va there is property tax on cars and annual inspections on cars, and state tax that comes out of paycheck.....none of the above in fla
