So the job my boyfriend got ended up not having the hours he needs or wants and here it is really hard to find a job. He is starting to look for a new one with more hours we might have to move to fortworth texas with his parents and just the thought of moving away from my parents gets me bawling because as a first time mommy I am so scared and can't imagine doing this without the help of my mom. I am hoping and preying that he can find a new job before January so we can stay close to my parents bit with the way the job feild is here I'm having my doubts... If you guys have any advice on keeping my mind at ease if we do have to move let me know please and any thoughts or prayers we can get will be much appreciated.
Oh I know moving away from family can be scary! When I first started dating DH I knew that if we got serious I would have to leave my family, but hoped we would stay at bases close by. After we got engaged I moved from Ohio to North Carolina, 10 hours from home. We lived there for about a year before we got orders to move to Germany. I was pregnant with Rylan at the time and scared out of my mind! It all works out though! Even if you do have to move away, you'll still find ways to stay close to your family! And if you ever need someone to talk to, don't be afraid to message me!

I feel you. We had to move a year ago to the Houston area because of work. It all worked out for me though because my family is just 3 hours away in my hometown back in Louisiana. My poor hubby though has all his family back in Las Vegas (where we moved from), Still, moving to any new place is scary, but honestly if there is work, I'd rather go where there is stability instead of constant fear of whether your next paycheck or unemployment is going to cover your bills. It may be scary at first, but it might be the best thing for you.
Aw, bummer!!! We are in the same boat- following the job, not the family. It is definitely a pain, but there are lots of cool support groups and things out there to help you out! I joined a club called MOMS here in my area, and I think they are international, so maybe you can look for one, too?
Of course, the best thing is if he can just find work where you live now. Good luck!!!!!!!!!
