I'm in two minds. Firstly, I think badly of fathers who run off overseas away from their responsibilities. So I can't help but apply that to a mother too. I see it as a weasels way out.. I wonder do they have a strong bond with that child if they can leave them behind? It just doesn't seem very responsibile, and despite our dreams, we as parents should be putting our childrens needs first usually.. And I know I would struggle to forgive my mum or dad if they left the country. Changing the custody arrangement is one thing, going across the ocean is another. But then on the other hand, if someone is depressed and struggling to be a good parent and has more support and opportunity elsewhere, maybe it would be better in the situation.
