Since coming to KIS I have been learning so much about the Third Culture Kid and Expat Families. One very useful site I have found is

The author’s description:

My name is Jerry and I write this blog.  I am a husband, a father, a trainer, a traveler, a culture vulture and an avid people watcher who loves to write about all of those things.  My beautiful blended family and I are globe trekkers who have expatted, repatted and then expatted again.  We are slowly discovering that wherever we are — we are home . . .  and missing it at the same time.

Sounds like a story some of us can relate to!
