Moving a large family from the U.S. to Australia brought challenges and taught lessons that may be valuable for others considering international assignments. Issues like education, housing, food, pets, finding friends for children, transportation, healthcare, and other issues need to be considered and managed. A variety of personal stories and their lessons will be shared.
