Two Different Solutions For Two Different Children In An Evacuation

A family with two employed parents was suddenly separated by an evacuation, leaving them with some important decisions to make quickly regarding the children’s education. The older daughter remained in her boarding school and became the school’s star student; the younger one remained with mom and came back to the U.S. The father remained overseas and commented that the daughter in the European boarding school was the only one in the family thriving throughout the crisis. I went to see her while visiting schools and saw for myself that she was a happy, well-adjusted young lady despite the turmoil the family had been through.
