  •  I was born and 'grew up' in America (4+ / 0-)

    but have lived, now almost half my life, in two other countries. If I were to try and distil the significance for me of this experience, it would probably be that it has given me the opportunity to not only experience different cultures, but the opportunity to experience myself through these otherwise unavailable contexts and perspectives. My understanding and feelings about all three countries is continually evolving. I hope your children make their choices because they experience the potential for growth, and not necessarily just to renounce something.
