  • You have to do what is in the best interest of your immediate family. I know it's hard moving away from your loved ones but you'll meet others and make new friends. Your family will always be there for you. Good luck on your decision :)

  • If it's a good deal then I would think to take it...You can always save and visit family later on once you get settled. You'd have to start over unless you already have friends in the area, but I'm sure you could find your way around to get situated. If it's a good thing, I would think to take it only because if you struggle, you might continue to struggle. If you have a way out of it...you can always see how it goes and if you don't like it...you can always change it around. If it were me, I'd take it, but I'm already on the other side of the world from my family. I miss the social network...support network that my family gave me, but meh...I have Facebook, skype, and magicjack to help me keep those connections. G'luck to you.

  • We've moved twice for jobs in the last 2 years-both times across the country. You do what you have to do -
