Hi- I am seriously considering looking at jobs teaching in the UAE. I am a single mom with sole legal custody of my children ages 7 and 12. Their dad is a sad story, which is why I have full custody, nobody knows where he is. How hard will it be to sponsor them without a letter from him? I have the court paperwork stating I have full custody. Can anyone tell me how life is for a single mom. I need to think out of the box the next few years to save money for our future as I am the only one providing for them. I have taught 19 years in the USA.
