When my husband and I moved to Seattle in November 2010, we knew it was the best thing for us. Sure, we'd miss our families and life-long friends back home, but there was a world of opportunity for us here that never would have opened up for us if we had stayed. We'd always have vacations and holidays to go back for visits, and Facebook and Skype for all the time in between. I never regretted our decision to move for one second. And then we had our son.
