My DD is very ill and soon will have to start staying in a hospital weeks on end. The hospital is 1.5 hours from our home.
DH has a job offer out of state and I told him I'm ok with him going because he has been out of work a long time.
I asked DH to take my son with him. He has agreed while I work on getting DD healthy enough to move and travel. Him and my son will set up our new home.
Yes, DH isn't my sons real dad but he has taken care of the kids since they were 1 and 3 years old.
We plan on doing guardianship papers and power of attorney stuff.
I was going over this one a friend of mine and she says I'm being selfish and mean to my son by shipping him off with DH. I am looking at this as DD will need so much attention and my time DS will be left out all the time. Without DH being here I'd be pulled a part wanting to be with my DD and DS.
Once DD is healthy enough to travel I'll call the movers and they'll pack us up and we'd join DH and DS.
Am I really being selfish and mean? What would you all do? An no, DH can't turn this job down nor can he ask them to hold the job. Timing sucks for this job offer but we need the income.
No, we do not get any state aid though DD will be getting SSI.
