A Child’s Adjustment to Yet Another Relocation
By Holly Suso on July 21, 2009
Since the day Isaiah was born in 2005 he has moved six times and had five addresses
(we’ve lived twice at grandmas). This is a result of mommy just
trying to make a living and following the work. In August of 2005, my shinny new baby boy was welcomed at grandma’s house where she nurtured and took care of him while I worked for a whole year. At the
time I was extremely underemployed at a small insurance company
which I commuted an hour to and from each day. Thankfully Hewlett
Packard offered me a job in the Bay Area if I would just move. This was
a great opportunity since it was in my previous area of expertise,
IT, and it would bring me back up to a comfortable salary range.
However, it required a move. My son would have to leave his other
parent — Grandma — and go to someplace unfamiliar with strangers.
