How can I work and live abroad with a family?


I have two young boys, under the age of 2. My husband and I have both been looking for more fulfilling jobs in the states. Then as a joke I suggested we move abroad and work elsewhere, since I have two friends that actually did that and were very successful. The joke turned into a real thought, but we don't really know how to go about it, since most abroad programs are for students or singles. If we were really to move our family abroad how would you suggest us going about it? I'm particularly interested in hearing from families that have done it.

    Yes, it is quite true, possibilities are endless, nonetheless, I think you need to have certain goals too. Planning as always is the most important ingredient. Just keep your priorities set in front of you and devise strategies accordingly.

    Great effort billiericky, migrating to another country with kids and that too without any support is really a momentous thing to pull off. I hope you definitely do it again in the near future.
