  • Important topics to consider when raising a Romanian child abroad

    The personalized book Journey to Another Homeland: Romania is a unique storybook for the Romanian communities living abroad, with Romanian families raising children abroad, or at least one Romanian parent in a multi-cultural family living in a foreign country.

    When being raised abroad, a child with Romanian roots finds it hard to immerse fully into either the Romanian community, with its Romanian culture and traditions, or either in the local culture of the country he/she is currently living in. This mix can lead to confusion and feelings of being overwhelmed many times.
