Nakaka inspire naman yung itinagal nyong manirahan sa abroad. But I have a question: How did you overcome doubts about yourself and/or doubts about your fate for you to be able to pursue life in abroad?

Quick story lang kaya ko natanong at humihingi na rin ng advice kasi confuse ako at this point:

IF matuloy ang migration namin buong family sa US tentative 2-3 yrs from now:
1. Ito na kaya ang best option for the family with a special needs child? I have a 5 yr old son with Autism/ADHD combined/Anxiety/Oppositional Defiant Disorder and a 15 yr old daughter without medical issues. Makatulong kaya ang US sa condition ng anak ko?
2. May makukuha pa kaya akong trabaho sa US (I'm 35 yrs. old) for someone like me na almost a decade ng out of employment dahil naging stay at home parent ako? If need ko mag aral uli no problem with me at all kasi I'm very eager to finish my education because I only had an unglamorous educational attainment (vocational) unlike the others na may masteral pa.
3.Ang purpose talaga namin is to seek better opportunities for our special child and to start a new life away from Philippines because of relatives issues. Feeling ko I can deal with hardships in other places rather than settle here in the Phils na puro sama ng loob ibinibigay sa akin.

IF Mag stay naman kami dito sa Pinas:
1. Walang solid program ang government for special needs child or else sariling gastos mo for private institution/private special education/private 1 to 1 tutorial/private therapists.
2. Nagtayo ng food cart business ang husband ko recently at barya lang ang kita sa laki ng expenses. Yung tinayo nila ng kaibigan nya is from scratch, hindi franchise kaya mataas ang cost ng start-up. Plus medyo hindi ganun ka impressive sa mga tao kasi hindi sya sa mall naka based parang sa kalsada lang. Naiistress ako sa financial status namin.
3. Nanghihinayang lang ako na may bahay kami dito pero sa US magre-rent lang kami. Nanghihinayang din ako na mas mura pa rin ang cost of living dito sa atin. (kung mali ako tungkol dito please correct me kasi need ko talaga ng input)

Yun lang, Thank you sa sasagot.

More than 10 years na din. I think 10 more years pa bago makauwi for good.

10 years to be exact this coming October.  Tatapusin ko lang yong insurance ko na investment and hopefully, once I get my benefits, I can go back home to Pinas and start my own business.  I have been gone too long I miss my family.  Matatanda na rin parents ko and I want to be there for them kahit andon naman sister ko.  Iba pa rin pag kompleto family.
