I have some inquiries from Rose about moving back here to the Philippines and about dual citizenship. I’ve known her and we’ve been friends on social media for years now. We’ve been corresponding there lately. I’ve seen pictures of her son ever since knowing her. At that time the son was still a baby, and now he is already getting bigger. He is a good looking kid. I’m just sorry to see that she lost her hubby when the son was still young.
Here’s her message to me: (I also asked her permission to post her inquiries here and she said it’s okay, she’s also eager to see and hear any advice from you guys)!
Some of our conversations:
Rose— “Good evening ate Feyma!!I been a blog follower of your hubby for along time. it is really fun to read all of the topic that he post all the time. and the fact that he is an American and living in our country instead of here in the US is very interesting. Anyway, let me tell you about my self. I am Rose, been married for 11 years now and living here in the US. My husband passed away 2 years ago and left me with a very handsome boy, thank God!! Otherwise I’m gonna be so lost. Anyway ate Feyma, the reason I reach you out because, I have been planning to move back in our country. I been thinking to stay for 5 years or so. Being alone it is not easy. I have been thinking ever since that, if we’re there it is more less stressed because I have a family who can help me. my parents are still both alive so, it is really awesome for them to see their grand son. the only thing that I been worried is the money, I already have an American passport so nothing to worry with that. Questions, unsa man akong option since American citizen ko? l don’t have a plan to get a dual. Please, kindly help me? It will be a lot of help for me. I’m still thinking to dare to going back home although all of my friends are against of my decision. Thank you so much in advance, and have a nice day!! Rose“
Hi Rose, Thank you for following our site. Yep, my hubby is really in love with our country. Thank God kay he is not one of those foreigners here nga bad mouthing our country. It’s sad sometimes hearing them. But oh, well.
Firstly, sorry to hear about your loss. It must be hard on you then. But yeah, you’re lucky you really had a very handsome young man.
I advise you to really get the dual citizenship para it’s easier for you and your kid. You should get for the 2 of you. Anyway, you can get for the 2 of you since he is underage. Since you’re an American citizen its limited to own properties here. So better get your dual there, much easier to get it there.
We have more messages from each other. But I want to see what you guys will tell her. One thing I told her that if she wants to moved here now is the good time since the son, he is still young. That was really the best advice our kids pediatrician had given us when we told him that we are moving back here. Our kids were similar aged to the kid of Rose. One thing that Rose has to bring with her here will be plenty of patience. 🙂
Rose, It’s good that you’re thinking of bringing your son here to know your side of the family. It’s going to be a big adjustments for you and your son. Don’t be shocked if your son will asked you to go back to the US right away. You might feel the same way. But hey, it’s just normal. Give yourself time to adjust here before giving up and move back there. I’m going to tell you that moving back here it’s not easy. Just have patience and understanding. Good luck to you. If you have more questions feel free to ask.
