    I totally believe it takes a village to raise a child!

    My parents were unfortunate to lose their parents in a matter of 3 years. So I was grandparentless as half went before I was born and the other half before my 3rd Bday. My mum only got through losing her mum a week before I was born, and then losing her dad a fortnight after I was born because her 4 sisters and 1 brother and 5 SIL all came together for each other and supported each other.
    If it wasn't for this village I don't know if my mum would have gotten through her PND (understandably) and disconnection from me.
    It also gives our whole village confidence that we have helped each other through soo much that there is always someone there to help emotionally or physically.
    Despite our village being statewide.
    I am soo glad that my children get be apart of this village and learn the value of just knowing if they fall there will be more then just me there to pick them up.

    Also the different people you meet, all different backgrounds, stories etc is great to teach the kids that everyone is different, and some of stories from people we have been lucky enough to join our village along the way have some amazing stories of where they have come from and got to today.

    My village is/was BH and child care. Whilst it's possible in theory to raise a child/children without a village it puts a huge amount of stress and pressure on parents (particularly mothers) and parent relationships which has a knock-on detrimental effect on the children.

    Talking about high school with the kids (DSD needs to choose hers this year), and DSS says he wants to go to high school in Ireland!

    Oh dude, if we could have the life we have here there, I would take you in a heartbeat...

    He hasn't met any of my side there, and he wouldn't go without us. His mother would never agree anyway.
