How long could you go without seeing your mom?

It's been 7 years for me but she lives 16 hours of flying away. I am planning to see her this year at Christmas, it brakes my heart to see her getting older in the pictures. I wish she would live with me but she loves her country and wouldn't move to the US for anything. She tried to visit but she has been denied on her visa application because the US embassy thinks everyone wants to come here and stay here illegally. I couldn't afford to go home until now, but now that she has two grand children that she never met I have to make a sacrifice and go home, even though it will cost us 3 months of pay.

  • She lives in Romania and she can't afford to help. When she wanted to come here I was supposed to pay for that too. The average pay in Romania is 200 dollars per month.

  • I would go and spend time with your mom. I have went about 2 years without saeeing my mom and that sucks. We were only 2 towns apart but that is another story in itself. Have a great time with your mom.

  • I haven't seen my mom for over 6 months, but not by my choice. We have issues and I have tried to work things out,but she doesn't want to work things out. The road goes both ways and she knows where I live.

  • My mom lives with me but before when she didn't I would see her everyday, she lived very close to me and I missed seeing her.
