"I didn't have my own life and when I talked to my friends back home they didn't understand me. I had no one who could really listen to me"


Imagine dealing alone with a newborn and a 19 months old baby. Now imagine relocating at the same time, trying to make a home in a new country and going back to work.

Katja and her family moved from Germany to Austria when the second child was only 8 months old. She struggled in her new country without friends, without childcare and moreover without being understood by those back home.

Katja shares with us her touching and heartfelt story and what helped her to deal with the challenges of being a mother abroad.
