Life in USA comes with all the bells and whistles. But, there are many challenges for an Indian family.
You must have read deep emotions in the following articles
I wish the solution were as easy as the author of this blog suggests. (Referring to above link)
I came to the US to work for max 2 yrs and then go back.
Didn’t bother applying for my GC..coz frankly I was never fascinated by the US or about settling down abroad.
Just wanted to experience independence before getting married.
Well, turns out I ended up living in the US longer than planned. Made a lot if friends, had a great time. My parents visited every year.
Met my husband and all was well, until one day I noticed my parents getting older when they visited me that year.
They do not want to live in the US.
They only want to visit. But I want to be closer to them, to be there to take care of them.
I want to move back to India now. But my husband won’t go back to India since his parents and siblings are all settled in the US.
So the next option is to try and bring my parents to US on a green card since I am a US citizen.
My parents are not very social, in the sense they don’t care for potlucks or attending events or gatherings.
Both are retired from high ranking jobs in India and are currently doing some advisory work there.
They need that mental stimulation. So getting them similar things to do in US is challenging.
Any suggestions on how to make that happen? Additional info on me..I am an only child, work full-time and have a son who goes to kindergarten. Thanks in advance for suggestions.
I know its tough and for your parents settling down USA is very tough. They are not used to the U.S. style of living.
