Hi Barbara, I got your site from my buddy at work (Bob) who tried to buy some pygmy goats from you recently. I have read with interest your comments and can relate to the negativity regarding emigrating to Canada.
I myself emigrated from Dublin, Ireland, in 1988 with our 2 kids, Ciara was four and a half years old, and Colm was 11 months at the time.
I too was told "Oh, you'll be back and you'll never make it there".
Well, 21 yrs later I'm still here and never leaving!
P.S. what a wonderful website ..... Happy New Year to you and all your family!Thank you for your kind words and good wishes Fran - I too have loved living in Canada, it is certainly "home" to me, and has been a great place to live and raise my family.
ps - please write again, and include your email address - I would like to contact you.
