What do we lose when we migrate? Those of us who have the privilege of choosing to move overseas often talk about the great things that making such a big change brings to us, like new experiences, new friends, and new opportunities. But we also leave things behind- and that can be really hard. Life moves on for everyone back home, and nothing brings that into focus more than when a loved one dies while you're overseas. Dealing with grief is a universal experience, but how do you deal with it when you're separated from your family? What does it say about he choices that you've made? And do you reevaluate them? This week's guest, Joana Savedra, is asking herself these questions after a recent death in her family, and her thoughts offer a window into a subject that is not often talked about in expat circles... or by those we've left behind.
