My brother's wife was the first one given the opportunity to work overseas, so no matter how difficult it was, she has to leave her loved ones and be the one to work for the family.
My brother still wanted to practice his profession but he very well knew that his son needed his full attention. I bet he's even thankful that his opportunity to work abroad hasn't come yet because he still have the time to raise his child who have special needs. Although our Brandon is functional and very smart, he still needed the attention that a parent can provide.
But just in case my brother gets the job abroad, I really hope that he will leave Brandon under my care. I know it wouldn't be easy but I'll do everything I can to do the best parenting for my nephew. I might consider getting a maid and make sure that a personal background check will be performed before hiring someone. Just so I will feel comfortable leaving my nephew under someone else's care whenever I leave for work at nights. It wouldn't be easy but I'll see what I can do. Anyway, this is just one the plans we have in mind.
