My kids have a lot of family in Illinois, all real close and happy, unlike most families that never get along. We live in Alabama and everyone is so spaced out, no get togethers, but I always thought that when my kids got grown and started families, we would have them and be close....until my son, who just graduated high school this year, told me he is moving to Illinois. It is going to be hard...miss him coming over when I am off to spend a few days, being here for the holidays...and him NOT being here the 31st for his birthday this year...first time I wont be able to celebrate personally with him. But....I want the best for them and I want them to be happy so I will not hold him back. I think it is a postive thing and I am happy for him.
Just thought I would ask...are you prepared for this when your kids are grown. I also have a friend who's daughter just moved to Italy...you never know what their dreams are...will you support them?Answer Question

Yes I am. They have to go where their life takes them. My oldest dd is going away to university in September. She will be 18 hours away, so for the next 4 years I will only see her at Christmas and in the summer.
She can legally live in 28 countries so after she graduates who knows where she will go. When I left home I moved to another country so I can hardly say anything.
