AM, sorry honey... totally a stressor, ...it would be nice if the family could help out... I don't know what I'd do if that happened to us. We ended up helping a few of our close family/friends with some costs to help them get there, but we did it earlier on and now we're still stressed about stuff you didn't think about $$ .... if you got money from any showers or gifts, would you be willing to help them with their costs?... you have to ask yourself how bad do you want them there to take on that extra financial burden though. Hopefully the family will help out with the costs... but for them they might be more concerned with saving that money to survive off rather than spend what they've been able to save and spend it to get there...it's a hard position to be in since they still have no guarantee at having a job when they come back? If he found another job, would he be willing to rejoin?Can they wait any longer or do they need to cancel now to not lose anymore money?

We are hoping his family may offer to help out...trying to keep positive thoughts.
