Three years ago was the first time I met my biological parents after twenty years of being separated from them. I am 25; my mother is 40 and my father is 39. Meeting them for the first time, lots of questions suddenly came to my mind. Why did they leave us? Why did they do this and that? And how on earth can a mother leave her children for so long and did not even bother being with them for twenty years. Personally, as a mom of two beautiful kids I can say that I couldn’t imagine living life without them.
They are my greatest blessing, my golden treasures and my life. I understand other parents leave their children to migrate to other countries and get a good job to sustain their children’s basic needs and to assure their children’s future but do you really have to go and leave us behind? It hurts so much that other parents couldn’t think of any other reason how to give their children a better future. I mean we all have our own differences and it should be respected as a human but you know did you ever think for once that all we need is your presence not the material things. Honestly, I admire those kind of parents who really tend to sacrifice being with their children just to give them a comfortable life. One of my biggest dreams is to the travel the world Since, I’m already married I want to travel with my family.
We’ve been to countries like Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Australia and United States of America. Traveling with the family and leaving everything behind to see the world seems a good idea yet a stressful one. Whenever we travel we see to it that the first thing we have in mind is seeing our doctor few weeks before our flight to check our health conditions. Other countries have different health risks and may require specific vaccinations. As we all know, being away from our household’s daily routine like eating and sleeping is more likely that someone might get sick. Adjusting when it comes to food, air and new environment might also take time. Did you ever travel without your kids? I did once but I don’t know if I can do it again because leaving my children at home can be a bit frightening and stressful and can also cause separation anxiety.
But I think if I needed this I know that I can do it by preparing ourselves so that we may feel more comfortable without each other for a few days or a few weeks or by assuring them that I will be back. I find it better if my kids stay at home while I am away rather than staying at someone else’s house. As a parent, I just want to make sure that while I’m gone they are safe because you can never tell where or when unexpected incidents can happen.
