me and my baby's father were togther for 4.5 years. we broke up almost a year ago. he moved to louisiana (his family is there) and me and our daughter stayed in texas. we recently got back together. i went to visit him and his family last weekend (me and my daughter were there for 4 days) and we had lot of fun and liked where he lives. he is willing to move back to texas when he gets done with school (3 months) but he also wants me to consider us moving ther since we like it so much and his family is way more active and united than mine. i dont really communicate with my family because there is really noone i connect with. im 27 and my youngest cousin is 23 and his girl is 21. i just dont connect with them, i am pretty much an only child, i have 2 young neices but we rarely see them and i dont really agree with my step brother and his girls' views on a lot of things. honestly the only thing thats holding me back is my best friend. i dont want to leave her. shes like a sister to me and thats like moving away from a sister. she helps me a lot and i see her on a daily basis because we work together. what do ya'll think?
I understand your feelings, leaving behind even a single close person is hard but what you have to do is decide what is best for your daughter - do you think it would be better to stay close to your friend or would it be better for you and your daughter to be closer to her family? I'm close to both my family and my husband's family, we were both raised to put family before anything else so to me being close to family would be more important. My best friend of 14 years, who I consider a sister, will be moving several hundred miles away in a couple years and even though we still have at least two years before that happens I'm dreading it because its like being away from family though I do have brothers and cousins who have moved to various parts of the U.S. and we make sure to stay connected through phone calls, texts, e-mails, and facebook when we can't visit.
