This forum exists as a support group for both those who serve and the families that support them. All US armed forces branches and also international members are welcome here.
We obviously want to live where it's more family friendly as we will be stuck here probably for the rest of husbands career. And as a military wife and mom I just really want to enjoy and love the place I live in, especially because we will be buying a house for sure.
Can any of you lovely ladies please help me out here. I need to eliminate one of them and would like to know your experience (housing off base, entertainment, crime, family friendly?, etc) and just any pros and cons based on being stationed there.
I'm so nervous about being 18 and on my own with our daughter while he's gone.. He says that there are other military family's and mothers to talk to but I'm so young I'm afraid I won't be accepted or taken seriously because of my age.
I don't know what to expect from all this. I'm scared to be alone and unprotected but I'd NEVER ask him not to go. I had dreams that had to be put on hold because I got pregnant so young I'm not going to make him do that same.
Also, does anyone know of any local baby wearing groups or stores that sell carriers, wraps, ring slings and so on.. thanks so much to anyone that can help.
