First of all I would love to congratulalte you in completing your degree and being a graduate . It is so hard as mums to follow our dreams at the same time raise our family and take care of our house. I was in the same situation like you and I am so happy that I followed my dreams. Big Congrats to you ange

My story is , I migrated to Australia from Africa in a rural town with my husband and six month old baby. While my husband went to work I felt lonely as I had knew no one and had no friends. i came from a big family so I really missed having family around me all the time. I did not have anything in the house so there was not much cleaning,dusting ,organising to do. I spent time taking care of my baby and cooking dinner for my family , I still had heaps of spare time and did not know what to do. I decided to start studying by corresponadance as i did not want to put my son in childcare . it took me 6 years to complete my degree and i went through lots during this time . Had a second son , travelled overseas I also remeber studying at the airport and completeing an online assesment at the airports free computer. When My second son was born it was really tough to concentrate on my studies as he was a demanding baby but I carried on I am so happy I did because now I have an amazing career and I love my job.
