Very much needed!
We're not ex-pats, but have lived temporarily abroad with our (now) 1yo. We lived 5 months in Canada and 2+ months in Australia. I wish I had this resource a year ago :)
Having worked in a global company and knowing expats with kids I am delighted to share this great resource Jennifer has conceived! It meets a great need for information and for community - the "I'm not alone" sigh of relief. Looking forward to more episodes Jennifer!
Very good advice for parents who are digital nomads or expats!
