This is our story of immigration struggles and moving to Mexico so our family can be together. Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy!

I am ready.....


In November one year ago, me and my husband decided that i was going to move to Mexico to be with him. First it was in January, than March, than May...you get the idea. I kept just booking vacations, but not committing to stay. I thought i was ready, but there was just a part of me that kept saying...just a little longer. Well no more. After this trip in August, i wanted to stay more than anything. Every time i leave it hurts a little more. A little more of me is left behind in Mexico. I miss my husband. My son misses his father. Our relationship isn't what it was or should be. It is so hard to sustain a relationship over the phone. I know we will come out ahead and stronger because of our trials, but i want to talk face to face with my husband. I want to hug him and hold his hand and watch him interact with our son.

So it is set. This November. I am quitting my job and me and my son are embarking on what may be the biggest journey of our lives. I am excited. I am nervous. No set date yet. When i see a good deal i am buying the one way tickets to Mexico. I will miss my family, my friends....heck maybe even my job. But i will survive and i will thank God for every blessing that he has given me.

Once you take the plunge, you'll be so glad that you did!

I am going to be driving down in November myself if you wanna load up your car and bring it too, lol. I'll be making the first of a few loads to get the majority of our stuff moved down before his appointment in January/February. It's scary but it's exciting at the same time. Keep posting to keep us up to date! It's so comforting knowing that we're not alone in this!

Hey that's awesome. It's good that you didn't rush into it - now you've got a feel for what things are like there and you will be more prepared and not jumping in to it. Wishing you the best with all of your preparations!
