Howzit, Although I'm new to this forum, I am not new to the idea of immigrating to New Zealand. Unfortunately life happened and the dreams of immigrating to New Zealand came to an abrupt halt in 2014. It has been a while since I looked into immigrating but now that things have settled and my kids (12 ;& 8) are older, I'm thinking there is no better time than the present...
In my mind I have decided to grab the adventure and make the best of it. Unfortunately, my friends and soon my family will start to pull at my heart strings and I'm afraid I might pull out of living my dream because of the doubt they put into my mind. I'm not naive to think that moving across the world alone with two children would be easy, but I have to believe that making this move is in the best interests of my kids and that moving would give them the best opportunities. So I thought I would join a support group where I could meet other people who are on the same journey and who instead of trying to discourage my dream would encourage me to keep going.
So, where am I in the process? The beginning Thankfully, I am fortunate to already have all unabridged birth certificates and all our passports are valid. I will only be in the financial position to start job searching and then visa process in about 18 months. In the meantime I intend doing a lot of researching, networking and saving.
