Expat Motherhood - The Long View

Expat Motherhood - The Long View


Being a mom has been the greatest and the hardest thing I have ever done or have ever been. Motherhood is both a noun and a verb. It is an identity and a calling. I am a single mom and I have spent the majority of my adult life overseas raising my two children. Being a single mom is challenging enough but combine that state of being with life overseas and it is a recipe for some incredibly unique challenges which simultaneously inspire and expire a person.The following is an anonymous quote that aptly describes the mom experience. “Experience is the hardest teacher. She gives the test first and the lesson later.” All I can say is – never has a truer word been spoken.
