Mixed feelings
08 Dec 2008
Still having mixed feelings about it all. One minute im excited and cant wait, the next i feel like stoping it all and staying here. Should we have waited to do this until the girls all wanted to come with us? would they have ever all wanted to come with us, do i sacrifice more years here, am i selfish, probably yes, do i feel guilty, like hell, do i wish we were all going, yes more than anything. Do i wish i lived in a 'normal' family , for years i have! The real test to see if we can do this, well if i can really do this, is if the girls come out next year, Fern is coming either for a very long hoiliday to start with and Jazz and Georgia for a holiday. Who knows what they will decide to do after that. They have their father here still so its hard for them, although they have all always lived with me since 2 months ago when Jazz and Georgia went to live with him. I dont know if i can do this until i try, if i cant ,then we will just come back again. But i am determined to give it a damm good try, i want to give my boy a chance even if i couldnt for my girls, but im hoping and praying i can give it to them one day too....

Thanks to everyone for their messages and the PM i received, i feel bit better about it all now, well for today anyways! I said goodbye to my mum last night as her and my stepdad are off for a 2 month trip this week, sods law shes in perth for 5 days but as she booked the trip when we were originally going next summer, we will not be there when she is! They gave us a lovely card with really lovely messages in, had a bit of a cry but know they will come out to see us. Cant believe we will be on the plane in 4 weeks time, scary! Thnaks again everyone for taking the time to reply. Mel x

Today i have mixed feelings about it all ,first time since we started the process. Think its because its all real now we have the visa, flights booked and furniture all gone. Someone said to me yesterday that she couldnt understand how i can leave everything and everyone behind, not in a very nice way either, and it really upset me. Everyone up till now has been pretty positive about it all, apart from the odd negative comment i put down to jealousy but this person was just plain nasty. I dont need to justify to anyone why we are doing this, as David said to me last night, only i know what i have been through in my life. I want to do this and am really excited about it all but also wonder whether i can really do it?
