i guess so my friend. i grew up without my father for he works abroad too. but the problem with him he only sends money and he thought his obligation is that alone. he calls my mother but never talked to us. now that i am a father myself sometimes i need to work out of town but still call my wife and talk to our son or sometimes have a chat with them and view them on the webcam. if your style is like the style of my father i guess your children will end up not knowing that you care just like me. in the world of technologies it is easier to communicate with your love ones when you are out of the country. you can still guide them even you are not physically around. i know they will love you more if you show effort that you care. good luck my friend.

hello dweeds, I can say yes...it's the quality time with them that matters. Some parents were living their children,but,seems like having walls between them. It's not the nearness or physical presence that matters,but,it's how we make them feel how much we care even if we are far from our kids.

It is truly heart aching Miss, that you're away from your kids. A child needs its mother to be raised properly, as we know. But sometimes it is not possible. So I would suggest you to leave them with someone you trust- from your family, a close friend etc. There they'll be raised properly... Good Luck!
