Bittersweet

Eyal and I always knew that it would be difficult building a family from two different countries. It is just now, however, that we have to really put that into practice. In about 7 weeks we leave Israel and fly back to Australia to live. Shiloh has only ever known Israel, and she is very close with her family here.

We don't know when we will be back. The idea of taking her away from the world she knows and loves here is difficult. But, of course, on the other hand, there is so much to show her in Australia. She will meet my mother! She will get to spend time with all of my friends and family. Eat the food we eat, run around in the Australian countryside. But it is hard not to realise that we are trading moments, and we will never actually bring those two worlds together, except within the walls of our own little house.

I suppose all families experience this to some degree. The breaking off from one's family home and becoming your own little unit. At the moment it feels especially painful. It also feels important to not be anticipating arriving in Australia too much. Instead we are working hard on savouring the time we have left here. All the moments that bring us closer to saying "goodbye" here and to rushing into my family's arms there are bittersweet.
