About the Author:

Amy Young is a third generation Colorado native, and the fact that she leads with this tidbit shows her love of the random. After growing up in Colorado, she moved to Kansas to study and ended up staying because it is far more beautiful than many think. She taught ESL and junior high math for several years before she moved to China, thinking it would be for two years. Sometimes it's good to be wrong in life. More than two decades later she's an expert at packing bags, saying goodbye, and making friends the world over. She blogs regularly at The Messy Middle (messymiddle.com).

Want to help your kids in their transition? "22 Activities for Families in Transition" will equip your family. You can also purchase a companion guide to the book called "Looming Transitions Workbook" for you to personally interact with the material. Each are only $5 on gumroad.com/amyyoung.
