Ok so here's the story... my partner and i were 18 when we had our son, we worked really hard, had our own place and never asked anyone for help, everything was going great until our son got really sick at 10 weeks old. We had to move to be close to the hospital but we couldnt afford the rent so we moved in with another couple that we didnt know. They turned out to be crazy and when my son was 5 months old on his very first Christmas they tried to kidnap him. It was terrifying! We had no choice but to move right than on christmas day, 2 hours away to my partners parents house. That was 2 years ago and we are still here, ive found a place for us to move to and am so happy to think our life will go back to normal but now my partners parents are upset because they have been there as my sons grown up and feel as though im taking him away from them. Its only down the road and i feel like we've let them know how grateful we are for everything they have done, but his mum just bursts into tears every time i mention us moving. Now i dont know what to do. Am i being horrible or is it ok to want my family to move on and get settled in a place we can call our own?...
