I know it's not quite the military, but I figured this might be a good board for my questions! DH and I are considering applying to become FSO's with the State Department. I've been doing extensive research, and it seems like now is a good time for us to do it (due to our son's age and many other variables).
My question is for those of you who live overseas, how is it with children? Did you find the transition difficult? Do they attend local schools? What are some of the biggest hurdles you've had to overcome (if any)? If you've been assigned to different bases, how do your children adjust to such changes? Any stories, advice, etc are much appreciated! I'm trying to make sure that we consider every possible angle before moving forward.
Are there any FSO's on this board?
My apologies if these are frequently asked questions. I scrolled back several pages but didn't see anything that answers my concerns. TIA!
