Hi all you lovely ladies.
My name is Shannon and recently got engaged to a wonderful man that I have known for four years. He has been working away from home since we started dating, starting out being trip leader on overland trips... He was away for 4 months then.. So I knew what I was getting into when I met him. He is now working offshore in Tanzania one month there, one month off... And I wait for him here on the shores of the sunny cape (Not so sunny right now).
We do not have children yet, but I would love to know the community of offshore wives and have the support for when we do have children. I am currently studying early childhood development, so I do worry about having a family in this situation.
