    Hi Ana. I am not an Expat Mom. But I have sympathy with all Expat Moms.

    When my beautiful son was born, I lived a mere 270km from my mom and that was bad enough for me that she was “so far away”.
    I cannot even imagine what it would be like had she been in another country.

    I think it’s awesome that you are reaching out to all those Expat Moms out there to offer help and support to them.

    You are an angel, may you be blessed.

      Hi Marlene, thank you so much for your thoughtful comment. I believe women worldwide can understand each other and help. Even when we’re so far away from our loved ones, we should never feel alone. I wish all the best for you, Marlene.

    Hey Ana,

    Although I am not an Expat Mother, I can sympathize with you. Being a mother a such a beautiful and terrifying thing at the same time. I couldn’t imagine being a new mom in a different country. That is pretty incredible. I am so glad that you had so much support from your husbands family. I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to go through it alone. This post is going to be helpful to so many Expat mothers.

    Hello Ana!

    This is an amazing idea to start up! I have lived abroad half of my life or more and I definitely know what it is like living in a unknown territory at the start- you are not too sure how things work; and don´t have that sense of community as you once were settled down in your home country. Doing what you are doing now really brings the community to each other and knowing that there is always someone to help out.
    I wish you the best of luck bringing out all those mothers together!

      Dear Jeremiah, Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on this. I came to this idea, because I felt lonely many times in a new country and I don’t want anyone has to go through that again. A community can solve so many things, it is an important pillar that can help in many many things, so I hope this community will grow to become a real supporter for everyone who might need it. Glad you like the idea, thank you so much.

    Dearest Ana, First of all, congratulations with this new project. I am so proud of you. As you know, I was an expat mom in Ankara. My two sons were born there. It was difficult since we were foreign but also because being parents is the hardest thing in the world for us. But life is great. We were in Ankara, were everybody was so warm and helpful. Starting with you!There are a lot of activities that moms can enjoy there. It is very important that expats join a community like this. Best wishes!!!

      Dear Bea, Thank you so much for your support. I made this virtual place where women can find each other, whether they are moms, business women, single or married. It is always easier when you have a friend and someone to share good and bad moments with, just as we did 🙂 I hope this community will grow every day. Wish you all the happiness in your new home. Love,Ana.
