Sending your loved one off to a new country, or even a new state, can be a hard decision to make and a challenging experience to go through (for everyone involved). As a student, parent, guardian, or as any loved one, you want to look out for their best interests and safety. You also want to support them through the important and impactful decisions they are making.
